Abstract / Description of output

Haemangiosarcoma is a malignant tumour of endothelial cell origin which may arise anywhere in the body. Where it is of cardiac origin then pericardial effusion is the most common clinical presentation. If the tumour is localised to the auricular appendage surgical excision may be an option for palliation of the condition. This case report describes a dog with cardiac haemangiosarcoma treated by auriculectomy and partial pericardiectomy.
