Entrapped Coronary Arteries in Constrictive Pericarditis.
The Journal of Invasive Cardiology; Patel NJ, Baker SM et. al.

Aug 3rd, 2021 - Pericardial constriction can be present without pericardial calcium and often without pericardial thickening. This epicardial coronary artery motion abnormality due to entrapment in a thickened, fibrotic pericardium, is characteristic of constrict...

US Database Study of Clinical Burden and Unmet Need in Recurrent Pericarditis.
Journal of the American Heart Association; Klein A, Cremer P et. al.

Jul 22nd, 2021 - Background Patients with recurrent pericarditis (RP) may develop complications, multiple recurrences, or inadequate treatment response. This study aimed to characterize disease burden and unmet needs in RP. Methods and Results This retrospective U...

Clinical significance of pulmonary hypertension in patients with constrictive pericardi...
Heart (British Cardiac Society); Lim K, Yang JH et. al.

Jul 22nd, 2021 - We investigated haemodynamics and clinical outcomes according to type of pulmonary hypertension (PH) in patients with constrictive pericarditis (CP). As the prevalence of CP with concomitant myocardial disease (mixed CP) grows, PH is more commonly...

Chronotropic Assessment in Patients with Constrictive Pericarditis.
International Heart Journal; Imamura T, Narang N et. al.

Jul 9th, 2021 - Management of constrictive pericarditis is often clinically challenging. Heart rate (HR) modulation using ivabradine is associated with improved clinical outcomes in patients with systolic heart failure, although it remains uninvestigated for othe...

Septal Shift for the Diagnosis of COnstrictive Pericarditis: The Impact of Inspiratory Effort Quantification on Deep Breathing Manoeuvres

Sep 5th, 2018 - This study will evaluate the effect of deep breathing manoeuvres on inter ventricular interdependency physiology. By providing further insight in this basic physiology we want to add more comprehensive data in favor or not of constrictive pericard...

Colchicine to Prevent Post-Pericardiotomy Syndrome and Atrial Fibrillation

Jun 21st, 2017 - Background. Patients undergoing cardiac surgery are at risk for post-pericardiotomy syndrome and post-operative atrial fibrillation. It is unknown whether post-pericardiotomy syndrome predisposes patients to constrictive pericarditis, but cardiac ...

New Methods to Diagnose Constrictive Pericarditis

Nov 4th, 2016 - Until now, diagnosis of constriction was based on pressure changes of ventricle by conventional pressure-wide hemodynamic evaluation but not on ventricular volume change. This study will provide answers to persisting questions about volume changes...

Prognostic Biomarkers in Patients With Acute Pericarditis

Apr 28th, 2016 - The study will aim at investigating novel plasma or imaging biomarkers in patients with acute pericarditis. All participants will be treated according to established clinical recommendations for the diagnosis and treatment of acute pericarditis. S...

Constrictive Pericarditis in the Adult Congenital Cardiac Population

Jun 13th, 2007 - Constrictive pericarditis is a notoriously difficult diagnosis to reach. There are no signs, symptoms or pathognomonic diagnostic tests for pericardial constriction. In the adult congenital patients, it is also difficult. In addition, with pulmona...

Sarcoidosis Resulting in Exsanguinating Esophageal Variceal Hemorrhage

Jun 4th, 2018 - Discussion Etiology Esophageal variceal hemorrhage is caused by pressure elevation in the portal venous system, leading to engorged esophageal veins that can bleed spontaneously. Approximately 90% of portal hypertension is due to liver cirrhosis.

Analyze This Image: Young and Short of Breath

Dec 2nd, 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...

How to tell constrictive pericarditis from mimickers
Cardiology News;

Feb 11th, 2015 - A patient with constrictive pericarditis will have enhanced ventricular interaction arising from the restraint imposed by a rigid, diseased pericardium. That’s crucial.

Short Course in Latent TB Matches Standard Tx

Dec 18th, 2014 - Action Points Rifamycin for 3 months or more in patients with latent TB was efficacious at preventing active TB, potentially more so than isoniazid alone. In patients with tuberculous pericarditis, most of whom also had HIV, prednisolone did not h...

Prednisolone, immunotherapy ineffective for most tuberculous pericarditis
Cardiology News; Mary Ann Moon

Sep 2nd, 2014 - Neither standard anti-inflammatory therapy using prednisolone nor an experimental immunotherapy using Mycobacterium indicus pranii injections reduced the composite outcome of death, cardiac tamponade requiring pericardiocentesis, or constrictive p.
