OBJECTIVES: Prognosis after pericardiectomy for constrictive pericarditis (CP) is affected by the aetiology of the constriction as well as by concomitant cardiac and non-cardiac disease, including liver dysfunction. However, few data exist on the risk stratification that accounts for liver function in patients with CP. We evaluated the effectiveness of the model for end-stage liver disease (MELD) score, an established measure of liver dysfunction, in predicting long-term survival and identifying other risk factors for death...

Constrictive pericarditis (CP) is defined as impaired diastolic cardiac function caused by a calcified and thickened pericardium. We assessed the clinical characteristics and time to diagnosis, as well as patient prognosis after pericardiectomy. Methods: We analyzed the records of 36 CP patients who underwent pericardiectomy at Huashan Hospital, China, between 2012 and 2015. Clinical manifestations, length of time to diagnosis, laboratory parameters, and diagnostic imaging results were examined. All patients underwent pericardiectomy, and were assessed post-operatively for quality of life and improvement of cardiac function using the Minnesota Living with Heart Failure Questionnaire (MLHFQ)...

BACKGROUND:  Although surgery is the sole therapeutic option for patients with constrictive pericarditis (CP), reports on high postoperative mortality rates have led to hesitant surgery referral. The aim of this study was to report the short- and long-term outcomes of surgical pericardiectomy (SP) from a large tertiary center. METHODS:  Between January 2005 and January 2017, 55 consecutive patients underwent SP after comprehensive echocardiography, computed tomography, and hemodynamic studies...

Primary pericardial mesothelioma represents less than 1% of all malignant mesotheliomas1 . These tumors are very rare, difficult to diagnose and with poor response to stablished treatments. Common clinical presentations include constrictive symptoms, cardiac tamponade and cardiac failure. Surgery can be curative in early stages and localized tumors and pericardiectomy and chemotherapy are often used as palliative approaches. Herein we present a case of a 54 years old female who has so far survived 4 years after a primary resection of a pericardial mesothelioma, and was referred with myocardial and aorto- pulmonary window recurrences for further treatment...

BACKGROUND: Post tubercular constrictive pericarditis is prevalent pericardial disease in developing countries. Pericardiectomy is the treatment of choice but considered a procedure of high morbidity and mortality. METHODS: From January 2003 to December 2013 we performed 130 pericardiectomies. Mean age was 22.95±12.55 years with 92 (71%) males. All patients were symptomatic; 118 (91%) were in NYHA class III / IV. Almost all patients were diagnosed to be of tubercular origin; 14 (11 %) histopathologically proven, 77 (59%) with definitive history while 39 (30%) suspected to be of tubercular origin and 91 (70%) received prior antitubercular treatment...

BACKGROUND: We studied the impact of radical pericardiectomy on early and long-term patient survival, postoperative New York Heart Association (NYHA) functional class, and left ventricular ejection fraction in patients with chronic constrictive pericarditis compared to a sub-total pericardiectomy. METHODS: From 1991 to 2016, 41 patients underwent pericardiectomy for chronic constrictive pericarditis. Sub-total pericardiectomy was performed in 17 (41%) and radical pericardiectomy in 24 (59%) patients...

Patients with Mulibrey nanism (MUL) present with growth failure and multiple organ manifestations, and MUL is caused by mutations in TRIM37. In this article, we report on the first case series of Japanese patients with MUL who developed congestive heart failure due to constrictive pericarditis. Our case series suggests that early diagnosis and total pericardiectomy before adherence of the pericardium might provide clinical benefit and better prognosis for MUL.

Background Chronic constrictive pericarditis is the most common diastolic disorder of the heart. Non-elasticity of the pericardium with impaired cardiac diastolic function is constriction. Chronic constrictive pericarditis is the result of scarring and fibrosis in mid and late diastole. The clinical presentation is similar to that of right heart failure. Historically, the etiology is helpful but not diagnostic. Echocardiography and a hemodynamic study are the main diagnostic tools. A thick pericardium of more than 4 mm is not necessarily constrictive, but thickness ≥7 mm is highly specific for constrictive features...

INTRODUCTION: Chronic constrictive pericarditis (CCP) is a disease that has multiple possible causes and is associated with variable clinical findings, depending on its severity. It develops insidiously, and in many cases, particularly in developed countries, no antecedent diagnosis can be found. These cases are termed idiopathic. Tuberculosis is the leading cause of constrictive pericarditis in developing nations but represents only a small minority in developed countries. METHODS: Here the authors describe two different case reports where tuberculosis was the probable cause of CCP...

Primary malignancies of the heart are so rare that most of the available data come from case reports or large single-center-based studies, with the overall incidence of 0.02% in the United States. Diagnosis in case of an isolated pericardial effusion as presentation is challenging, and determining that an angiosarcoma is even more challenging. Here, we presented a rare case of pericardial angiosarcoma which presented to us with tamponade. The patient eventually was diagnosed through pericardiectomy. A multimodality approach was attempted to treat the cancer...

A 66-year-old man with seronegative, erosive rheumatoid arthritis for 12 years presented with malaise, elevated alkaline phosphatase and gamma-glutamyl transferase, and leg oedema. He subsequently developed ascites. No liver pathology was found, but cardiac analysis including right heart catheterisation revealed constrictive pericarditis. Rheumatoid constrictive pericarditis is a rare condition, but, despite current effective treatment for rheumatoid arthritis, still occurs. Diagnostic delay is frequent. Although mortality of the intervention is high, pericardiectomy is needed for most patients...

BACKGROUND Melioidosis is a rare tropical bacterial infection caused by the Gram-negative soil saprophyte, Burkholderia pseudomallei. Melioidosis can mimic a variety of diseases due to its varied presentation, and unless it is treated rapidly, it can be fatal.  A rare case of melioidosis, with pericarditis and pericardial effusion, is described, which demonstrates the value of early diagnosis with echocardiography and pericardiocentesis.

Purulent pericarditis is a rare infectious disease with significant mortality, even in the modern antibiotic era. The presenting signs can often be subtle and patients can deteriorate rapidly with cardiac tamponade. We report a previously healthy 16-month-old female who developed purulent pericarditis associated with paronychia and sepsis caused by methicillin-sensitive Staphylococcus aureus. In addition to antibiotic treatment, she required emergent pericardiocentesis for cardiac tamponade, followed by two surgical interventions including full median sternotomy incision and partial pericardiectomy...

A 69-year-old male was referred to our hospital after being diagnosed as having pericarditis with pericardial effusion. The symptoms of tamponade disappeared after the effusion was drained;although the cause of pericarditis remained unidentified. About 4 months later, the tamponade symptoms recurred due to the thickened nodular pericardium. Partial pericardiectomy was performed, however the patient died on the 52nd day after surgery. Immunohistological examination with calretinin led to the diagnosis of primary malignant pericardial mesothelioma, which was an extremely rare pathology...

BACKGROUND: Acute purulent bacterial pericarditis is of rare occurrence in this modern antibiotic era. Primary involvement of the pericardium without evidence of underlying infection elsewhere is even rarer. It is a rapidly progressive infection with high mortality. We present an extremely rare case of acute purulent bacterial pericarditis in an immunocompetent adult patient with no underlying chronic medical conditions. CASE PRESENTATION: A 33-year-old previously healthy white man presented with the complaints of chest pain and dyspnea...

RATIONALE: Purulent pericarditis is a rare and usually fatal disease. Immunodeficiency state and preexisting pericardial effusion can predispose patients to infections. However, we are not aware of similar cases in patients with adult-onset Still's disease (AOSD). In addition, it is seldom caused by Salmonella bacteria. PATIENT CONCERNS: We report a 30-year-old woman with dyspnea on exertion and epigastric fullness. She was newly diagnosed with AOSD 4 months previously and medicated with prednisolone...
