Surgical resection of enlarged calcification formed by idiopathic localized constrictive pericarditis during total aortic arch replacement for aortic dissection.

J Card Surg 2019 Apr 24. Epub 2019 Apr 24.

Department of Cardiovascular Surgery, University of Tsukuba, Ibaraki, Japan.

A 75-year-old woman presented at a prior hospital with persistent cough and was treated conservatively for a thrombosed-type aortic dissection (Stanford A). One-year after discharge, follow-up computerized tomography revealed a DeBakey type II, chronic dissecting aortic aneurysm enlarged to 54 mm. She was referred to our hospital with slight edema in the face and extremities and chest radiography showed calcification around the heart. Read More

Multimodality Imaging for the Assessment of Pericardial Diseases.

Curr Cardiol Rep 2019 Apr 16;21(5):41. Epub 2019 Apr 16.

Heart and Vascular Institute, Center for the Diagnosis and Treatment of Pericardial Disease, Cleveland Clinic, Cleveland, OH, USA.

Purpose Of Review: The diagnosis of pericardial syndromes, while occasionally straightforward, includes a wide range of pathologies and is often a well-recognized clinical challenge. The aim of this review is to highlight the key role of the various imaging modalities for the diagnosis and management of the spectrum of pericardial diseases.

Recent Findings: Cardiac imaging has become an integral part of the diagnostic process often beginning with echocardiography and supported by advanced imaging modalities including computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, and positive emission tomography. Read More

Detectable prednisolone is delayed in pericardial fluid, compared with plasma of patients with tuberculous pericarditis: A pilot study.

Int J Cardiol Heart Vasc 2019 Mar 11;22:105-110. Epub 2019 Jan 11.

Department of Medicine, University of Cape Town, South Africa.

Background: In patients with tuberculous pericarditis [TBP] adjunctive prednisolone reduces the incidence of constrictive pericarditis. It is unknown whether prednisolone permeates adequately into pericardial fluid. Drug measurements in pericardial fluid require invasive procedures, and thus less invasive methods are needed to perform full pharmacokinetic characterization of prednisolone in large numbers of patients.

1 Department of Cardiothoracic Surgery, Heart Center, University of Cologne, Cologne, Germany.

Pericardial cysts are rare, abnormal, benign and usually congenital anomalies with an estimated incidence of 1:100.000 and are caused by an incomplete coalescence of foetal lacunae of pericardium development. The size of pericardial cysts varies from 1 to 5 cm and generally do not cause any symptoms. Read More

National Research Center for Hematology, Moscow, Russia.

Constrictive pericarditis (CP) is the final stage of a chronic inflammatory process characterized by fibrous thickening and calcification of the pericardium that impairs diastolic filling, reduces cardiac output, and ultimately leads to heart failure. We present a clinical case of CP in a patient with rare inherited bleeding disorder - factor VII deficiency. Heart failure due to CP was suspected based on clinical symptoms, results of ultrasonic and radiological investigations. Read More

Oxf Med Case Reports 2019 Jan 24;2019(1):omy110. Epub 2019 Jan 24.

Frimley Health NHS Foundation Trust, Wexham Park Hospital, Slough, UK.

Pericardial effusion with constrictive physiology describes a condition in which the pericardial fluid and thickened and dense pericardium limit left ventricular (LV) diastolic filling and prevent ventricular stretch. This leads to equalization of the end-diastolic pressure in cardiac chambers and poor ventricular filling. We report two patients, who presented with symptoms and signs of severe heart failure and with significantly raised BNP levels who were subsequently diagnosed to have pericardial effusion with constrictive physiology.

TRIMming down to TRIM37: Relevance to Inflammation, Cardiovascular Disorders, and Cancer in MULIBREY Nanism.

HEMATIM, EA4666, CURS, CHU Amiens Sud, Avenue René Laënnec, Salouel, F-80054 Amiens, France.

TRIpartite motif (TRIM) proteins are part of the largest subfamilies of E3 ligases that mediate the transfer of ubiquitin to substrate target proteins. In this review, we focus on TRIM37 in the normal cell and in pathological conditions, with an emphasis on the MULIBREY (MUscle-LIver-BRain-EYe) genetic disorder caused by mutations. TRIM37 is characterized by the presence of a RING domain, B-box motifs, and a coiled-coil region, and its C-terminal part includes the MATH domain specific to TRIM37. Read More

There is a need to review the multimodality imaging techniques, as well as the emerging role of the newer noninvasive imaging modalities in the field of constrictive pericarditis (CP). Therefore, the aim of this review is to summarize the current available techniques that are useful for the diagnosis and differentiation of CP from restrictive cardiomyopathy. Also, we provide illustrative images and videos of typical CP noninvasive imaging findings, as well as a diagnostic and management algorithm. Read More

A case of medical management of tricuspid regurgitation related to atrial fibrillation with constrictive pericarditis-like hemodynamics.

J Cardiol Cases 2018 Nov 27;18(5):175-179. Epub 2018 Aug 27.

Department of Cardiovascular Medicine, Faculty of Medicine and Graduate School of Medicine, Hokkaido University, Sapporo, Japan.

Severe tricuspid regurgitation (TR) is reported to represent a hemodynamic pattern similar to that of constrictive pericarditis (CP), which should be clearly differentiated for appropriate management. We report the case of a patient with severe TR due to atrial fibrillation (AF) in whom hemodynamic monitoring played a role in the selection of the management strategy. An 81-year-old Japanese man with chronic AF was admitted due to worsening heart failure. Read More

Epidemiology of pericardial diseases in Africa: a systematic scoping review.

Heart 2019 02 10;105(3):180-188. Epub 2018 Nov 10.

Department of Medicine, University of Cape Town and Groote Schuur Hospital, Cape Town, South Africa.

Objectives: This scoping review sought to summarise available data on the prevalence, aetiology, diagnosis, treatment and outcome of pericardial disease in Africa.

Methods: We searched PubMed, Scopus and African Journals Online from 1 January 1967 to 30 July 2017 to identify all studies published on the prevalence, aetiologies, diagnosis, treatment and outcomes of pericardial diseases in adults residing in Africa.

Results: 36 studies were included. Read More

P-wave terminal force in lead V1 is a predictive indicator for the diagnosis of tuberculous constrictive pericarditis.

Heart Lung 2019 Mar - Apr;48(2):155-158. Epub 2018 Oct 31.

Heart Center, Sir Run Run Shaw Hospital, Zhejiang University School of Medicine, No. 3 Qingchun East Road, Jianggan District, Hangzhou 310016, China. Electronic address:

Objectives: The purpose of this study is to explore the value of P-wave terminal force in lead V1 (PTFV1) in the clinical diagnosis of tuberculous constrictive pericarditis (TCP).

Methods: A total of 53 patients with TCP and 64 patients with tuberculous exudative pericarditis were enrolled in this retrospective study. The demographic and clinical characteristics were collected, including gender, age, the course of disease and New York Heart Association (NYHA) classification. Read More

Disparity in spatial distribution of pericardial calcifications in constrictive pericarditis.

Open Heart 2018 7;5(2):e000835. Epub 2018 Oct 7.

Center for the Diagnosis and Treatment of Pericardial Diseases, Cleveland Clinic, Heart and Vascular Institute, Cleveland, Ohio, USA.

Background: Pericardial calcification is seen among patients with constrictive pericarditis (CP). However, the pattern of pericardial calcium distribution and the association with clinical outcomes and imaging data are not well described.

Methods: This was a retrospective study from 2007 to 2013 to evaluate the pattern of pericardial calcium distribution by CT in CP using a semiquantitative calcium scoring system to calculate total pericardial calcium burden and distribution. Read More
