Tricuspid valve myxoma is extremely rare. An asymptomatic young patient discovered by chance an echogenic mass on the tricuspid valve by echocardiography, which was proved to be a myxoma. He underwent a successful myxoma resection via port-access approach. He had an uneventful postoperative course. Port-access approach is an alternative to conventional open heart surgical technique in terms of its minimally invasive purpose for myxoma resection. Moreover, it is of great importance in reducing the risk of intraoperative embolization and tumor implantation by minimizing the heart maneuver.
