Jul 12th, 2013 - Primary chylous pericardial effusion is a rare entity with few cases reported so far. We report a case of idiopathic etiology in a previously healthy 16-year-old boy. The patient presented with intermittent chest pain and dizziness caused by a chronic pericardial effusion. An echocardiogram revealing a pericardial effusion and open pericardiocentesis with a drainage of approximately of 500 ml o...

Aug 20th, 2013 - The presence and size of a pericardial effusion in pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) and its association with outcome is unclear. In this single-center cohort study of 577 patients with group 1 PAH seen between January 1, 1995, and December 31, 2005, all patients underwent transthoracic echocardiography and were followed for ≥ 5 years. Echocardiography-guided pericardiocentesis was performe...

Jul 25th, 2017 - Comparative outcomes of patients undergoing pericardiocentesis or pericardial window are limited. Development of pericardial effusion after cardiac surgery is common but no data exist to guide best management. Procedural billing codes and Cleveland Clinic surgical registries were used to identify 1,281 patients who underwent either pericardiocentesis or surgical pericardial window between Janua...

Jul 5th, 2013 - Surgical pericardiotomy is often preferred as a primary option in patients with malignant pericardial effusions. Recent series have revealed that prolonged drainage substantially reduces pericardial effusion recurrence rates, even in the setting of malignancy. The aim of the study was to directly compare the efficacy of pericardiocentesis with prolonged drainage with the primary surgical perica...

Nov 20th, 2013 - The prevalence, predictors and outcome of myopericarditis in patients with tuberculous (TB) pericarditis are unknown. Eighty-one patients (mean age±SD, 36.1±13.3 years; 54 (66.7%) men; 58 (71.6%) HIV seropositive) with TB pericarditis were recruited between January 2006 and September 2008. Myopericarditis was defined as echocardiographic LV systolic dysfunction (immediately after pericardiocent...

Apr 18th, 2013 - Echocardiography-guided pericardiocentesis is the first choice method for relieving cardiac tamponade, but the exact role of the echocardiography at the moment of the puncture is still controversial. In this report, detailed echocardiographic evaluation was performed in 21 consecutive patients with cardiac tamponade just before the pericardiocentesis. Appropriate needle position was determined ...
Clinical Anatomy (New York, N.Y.); Loukas M, Walters A et. al.
Feb 1st, 2012 - The safe and successful performance of pericardiocentesis demands a working and specific knowledge of anatomy. Misunderstanding of anatomy may result in failure or serious complications. This review attempts to aid understanding of the anatomical framework, pitfalls, and complications of pericardiocentesis. Pericardiocentesis is carried out for aspiration of blood from the pericardial cavity in...

Sep 12th, 2011 - Recurrence of pericardial tamponade is relatively common after pericardiocentesis. We evaluated the clinical and procedural predictors of recurrent pericardial tamponade after pericardiocentesis. We included 157 consecutive patients with pericardial tamponade (age 62 ± 18 years, 54% men) who had undergone pericardiocentesis from 2000 to 2007. An intrapericardial catheter was used for prolonged ...

Sep 3rd, 2014 - Cardiac tamponade has been reported in 18.7% of patients with acute type A aortic dissection and its presence is associated with worse outcomes. Emergency aortic repair together with intra-operative pericardial drainage is the recommended treatment approach. However, controversy surrounds how to manage patients with haemopericardium and cardiac tamponade who cannot survive until surgery. To des...

Aug 23rd, 2010 - The incidence and extent of pericardial involvement in neoplastic disease varies. In a considerable number of patients with breast or lung cancer or with mediastinal lymphoma, in addition to direct involvement by the tumor, radiation therapy as well as systemic tumor treatment can also lead to pericardial effusion. In addition, in immunosuppressed tumor patients, pericardial effusion can also a...

Jul 2nd, 2013 - Ultrasound-guided procedures are becoming very common in emergency medicine and critical care. Ultrasound guidance for pericardiocentesis has been shown to reduce errors as compared with the landmark-based technique. A simplified in-plane ultrasound-guided pericardiocentesis allows the clinician an opportunity to visualize the needle and the guide wire during the procedure. In addition, post pr...

Sep 4th, 2015 - Pericardial effusion (PE) is common in cancer patients, but the optimal therapeutic approach is not well defined. Percutaneous pericardiocentesis is less invasive than surgery, but its long-term effectiveness and safety have not been well documented. The goal of this study was to evaluate outcomes of cancer patients undergoing percutaneous pericardiocentesis for PE and assess the procedure's sa...

Jul 16th, 2015 - The present systematic review assessed the safety and efficacy of percutaneous interventions for malignant pericardial effusion (MPE), with primary endpoint of recurrence of pericardial effusion. Electronic searches of six databases identified thirty-one studies, reporting outcomes following isolated pericardiocentesis (n=305), pericardiocentesis followed by extended catheter drainage (n=486), ...

Mar 11th, 2013 - We report a case of a patient receiving dabigatran who developed a life-threatening bleeding complication during cardiac ablation that rapidly resolved after administration of Factor Eight Inhibitor Bypassing Activity (FEIBA). Therapeutic anticoagulation with warfarin during cardiac ablation has been shown to reduce the risk of stroke and systemic embolism. Cardiac tamponade is a potentially li...

Aug 13th, 2008 - We present the case of a patient with recurrent episodes of pericardial effusion and fever. During approximately one month, the patient was treated with double pericardiocentesis for cardiac tamponade and the last of them was interrupted for the suspect of left ventricular puncture due to aspiration of arterial blood from the needle used for pericardiocentesis. Considering the suspect of infect...

Mar 16th, 2009 - Congenital ventricular cardiac diverticula are rare. They may occur prenatally in association with a pericardial effusion which, if large enough, can compromise fetal circulatory and lung development. Parental counseling is difficult because some cases resolve in the second trimester and others progress to worsening hydrops and intrauterine death. We present a case associated with a massive per...

Jul 22nd, 2013 - Needle access or drainage of pericardial effusion, especially when small, entails risk of bystander tissue injury or operator uncertainty about proposed trajectories. Cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) might allow enhanced imaging guidance. We used real-time CMR to guide subxiphoid pericardial access in naïve swine using commercial 18G titanium puncture needles, which were exchanged for pe...
