Pedro Caravaca Perez, Francisco Galvan Roman, Pilar Escribano Subias

Overview

Cardiac tamponade may occur in subjects with significant pulmonary hypertension, but its echocardiographic expression is different from conventional cardiac tamponade. We report a case of reverse cardiac tamponade in a patient with severe pulmonary hypertension.

Summary

This article expresses which are the most important echocardiographic signs to recognize this entity.

Although reverse cardiac tamponade could be found in virtually any case of severe pulmonary hypertension, group 1 pulmonary hypertension secondary to autoimmune processes may be at increased risk. This is due to the higher risk of associated pericardial effusion than in other groups of pulmonary hypertension.Mr. Francisco Galvan Roman
