At the Institute of Cardiology of Istanbul University, 6 patients with cardiac echinococcosis were operated between 1985-1989. They were between 12 and 53 years of age, one being female. All patients were symptomatic. Echocardiography has played a major role in diagnosis. Cardiac hydatid cysts were Iocated in the left ventricular myocardium except one being in the right ventricular apex. There was no operative mortality and postoperative complications. All patients were found asymptomatic after a mean followup of 35 months (18 to 54 months) postoperatively.
