https://doi.org/10.1136/heartjnl-2020-316664
Heart (British Cardiac Society); Janus SE, Hoit BD

Jan 16th, 2021 - When pericardial fluid accumulates and exceed the reserve volume of the pericardium or when the pericardium becomes scarred and inelastic, one of three pericardial compressive syndromes may ensue, namely, cardiac tamponade (CT), characterised by t...

Constrictive pericarditis after open heart surgery: A-20 year case controlled study.
https://doi.org/10.1016/j.ijcard.2020.12.090
International Journal of Cardiology; Moreyra AE, Cosgrove NM et. al.

Jan 9th, 2021 - Constrictive pericarditis is a rare complication of open heart surgery (OHS), but little is known regarding the etiologic determinants, and prognostic factors. The purpose of this study was to investigate clinical predictors and long term prognosi...

https://doi.org/10.1136/heartjnl-2020-317304
Heart (British Cardiac Society); Sato K, Ayache A et. al.

Jan 7th, 2021 - Patients with constrictive pericarditis (CP) with active inflammation may show resolution with anti-inflammatory therapy. We aimed to investigate the impact of anti-inflammatory medications on constrictive pathophysiology using echocardiography in...

Pericardiectomy for constrictive pericarditis.
https://doi.org/10.1510/mmcts.2020.076
Multimedia Manual of Cardiothoracic Surgery : MMCTS; Di Lazzaro D, Di Bella I et. al.

Jan 5th, 2021 - Chronic constrictive pericarditis results from inflammation and fibrosis of the pericardium. This situation eventually leads to impairment of diastolic filling and right heart failure. Once the diagnosis is made, because the disease is basically i...

https://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/872211_2

Dec 1st, 2016 - Explanation: What is shown in Figure 1 is the pulse-wave (PW) Doppler through the left ventricular outflow tract (LVOT). The rhythm is regular, but the peak velocities vary from 0.8 m/s to 1.1 m/s. When there is significant variability in the flow...
