Endoluminal leiomyomatosis of the lower vena cava with extension to the right atrium

We present a case of a 57-year-old patient who underwent total abdominal hysterectomy plus right salpingoophorectomy in 2018, subsequently performed diagnostic images showing an injury that occupies the lumen of the inferior vena cava and extends from the right iliac vein to the atrium; initially percutaneous extraction is attempted, which is failed, which is why the patient is scheduled for open surgery (laparotomy) in conjunction with the department of hepato-biliary and cardiovascular surgery; in the operating room, it is approached by incision of Mercedes Benz, performing disinsertion and hepatic mobilization exposing the inferior vena cava, the same is incised and the tumor mass is betrayed until the lesion is completely removed.
