Mitral Valve Repair for Severe Mitral Regurgitation Masked by Constrictive Pericarditis...
https://doi.org/10.1053/j.jvca.2020.03.042
Journal of Cardiothoracic and Vascular Anesthesia; Abdallha M, Ahmed EO et. al.

May 17th, 2020 - A case of severe mitral regurgitation (MR) that was masked by constrictive pericarditis and revealed after pericardiectomy is presented. Diagnosis was made intraoperatively with transesophageal echocardiography. Mitral valve repair was performed u...

Subacute pericardial abscess after aortic valve replacement: a case report.
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC7218556
BMC Infectious Diseases; Magnani I, Spadotto A et. al.

May 14th, 2020 - Purulent pericarditis is an infectious disease, frequently caused by gram-positive bacteria, that is rarely observed in healthy individuals, and is often associated with predisposing conditions. Here, we present the case of an Escherichia coli pos...

Seminars in Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery; Calderon-Rojas R, Greason KL et. al.

May 10th, 2020 - We hypothesized that tricuspid valve regurgitation was associated with increased risk of mortality after pericardiectomy for constrictive pericarditis. We reviewed the records of 518 patients who received pericardiectomy for constrictive pericardi...

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...

IMPI: No Immunotherapy Benefit in Tuberculous Pericarditis
https://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/831330

Sep 7th, 2014 - BARCELONA, SPAIN — In the large Investigation of the Management of Pericarditis (IMPI) trial of patients with presumed tuberculous pericarditis, neither of two immunotherapies—prednisolone and Mycobacterium indicus pranii—reduced the primary effic...

Prednisolone, immunotherapy ineffective for most tuberculous pericarditis
