Answer

Data from one series of patients with primary cardiac sarcomas showed that median survival is approximately 17 months for those who undergo complete surgical excision and 6 months for those who do not. [8]

Patients with angiosarcoma had a lower survival compared with patients with other histologies and longer survival is associated with left-sided lesions. [9]
