constrictive pericarditis in India

Sandeep Seth, Deepak Thatai, Sanjeev Sharma, Prem Chopra, K K Talwar
BACKGROUND: Restrictive heart disease is characterized by impairment of ventricular filling during diastole with preserved systolic function. The clinical and histopathological profile on endomyocardial biopsy of a cohort of patients with restrictive cardiomyopathy (RCM) is presented. METHODOLOGY: The medical records of patients presenting with heart failure with systemic congestion, subsequently diagnosed as restrictive heart disease after evaluation including cardiac catheterisation, were studied retrospectively to determine the clinical spectrum of restrictive cardiomyopathy...

Purulent pericarditis, though rare in developed countries, is not uncommon in developing countries. However, the type of pericardial drainage required and the risk of subsequent constrictive pericarditis has not been clearly defined. Thirty children between the ages of 3 months and 12 years with a diagnosis of purulent pericarditis were studied retrospectively. Pericardial effusion was confirmed in all by echocardiography and the diagnosis of bacterial pericarditis was based on aspiration of purulent fluid with leucocytosis and high proteins...

OBJECTIVES: Plasma hormones at rest in patients with untreated severe congestive cardiac failure are similar to those occurring during heavy exercise in healthy people. This study examines the hypothesis that the neuroendocrine effects of exercise are modified in untreated congestive cardiac failure. DESIGN: The effect of lying, standing, upright exercise, and recovery on several plasma hormones was measured in healthy controls and 2 groups of patients with severe untreated heart failure...

We studied 33 surgically proven cases of constrictive pericarditis during the period 1989-1991 by color Doppler echocardiography and angiography to look for incidence and postoperative outcome of atrioventricular regurgitation. The mean age was 27.2 + 16.5 years (21 males, 12 females). There was a very high incidence of mitral (79%, trivial in 13, mild in 11 and moderate in 2) and tricuspid (73%, trivial in 7, mild and moderate in 6 each and severe in 5) regurgitation. There was good correlation between 'color Doppler' and angiography for detection and quantification of these regurgitations (r = 0...

Our study ellucidates the utility of endomyocardial biopsy (EMB) in various cardiac-muscle disorders seen in a tropical country like India. The procedure has been successfully performed in 501 patients (572 procedures) at our centre from April 1985 to December 1992. This included 60 infants and children. The indications were dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) in 214, non-specific aortoarteritis in 91, rheumatic heart disease in 75, restrictive cardiomyopathy in 45, constrictive pericarditis in 14 and miscellaneous in 62 patients...
