Constrictive pericarditis: 21 years' experience and review of literature.

Pan Afr Med J 2021 8;38:141. Epub 2021 Feb 8.

Department of Cardiac Surgery, Military Hospital of Tunis, Tunis, Tunisia.

To the best of our knowledge there are no publications about Tunisian experience in constrictive pericarditis (CP); the aim of this study was therefore to review our twenty-one years' experience in terms of clinical and surgical outcomes and risk factors of death after pericardiectomy. An analytic bicentric and retrospective study carried out on 25 patients (20 male) with CP underwent pericardiectomy, collected over a 21-years period. The mean age was 40. Read More

Multimodality imaging of constrictive pericarditis in H syndrome.

Echocardiography 2021 Apr 26. Epub 2021 Apr 26.

Rajaie Cardiovascular Medical and Research Center, Niayesh Highway, Tehran, Iran.

This is the first report of constrictive pericarditis (CP) in a 16-year-old boy with H syndrome with pericardial involvement predominantly over the right ventricle with favorable response to anti-inflammatory treatment. H syndrome, first reported in 2008, is a new auto-inflammatory syndrome with multiorgan involvement due to mutation in the SLC29A3 gene. We described the echocardiographic characteristics of asymmetric pericardial involvement and presented the cardiac computed tomography angiographic and magnetic resonance imaging findings. Read More

Pericardiectomy for Constrictive Pericarditis: Analysis of Outcomes.

J Cardiothorac Vasc Anesth 2021 Feb 11. Epub 2021 Feb 11.

Division of Cardiovascular and Thoracic Anesthesiology, Department of Anesthesiology and Perioperative Medicine, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN. Electronic address:

Constrictive pericarditis is caused by pericardial inflammation and fibrosis, leading to diastolic heart failure. The diagnosis requires a high index of suspicion because it often can mimic restrictive myocardial disease and cardiac tamponade and can be associated with severe tricuspid regurgitation and chronic liver disease. Patients who remain undiagnosed can experience a 90% mortality rate, and for those who undergo pericardiectomy, the survival rate varies significantly, depending on the underlying etiology and preoperative functional class of the patient.

Diagnosis and etiological identification in severe constrictive pericarditis in a 14-year-old girl: a case report.

Transl Pediatr 2021 Jan;10(1):209-214

Department of Heart Center, Tianjin Third Central Hospital, Tianjin, China.

Constrictive pericarditis in children is exceedingly rare, and may cause very problematic confusion of diagnosis and etiology identification. In this case, we examined a 14-year-old female patient who had developed signs of significant anasarca which was eventually turned out to be constrictive pericarditis. Affected by the experience of examiners, the patient was not diagnosed or even suspected with constrictive pericarditis when she was initially examined by echocardiography in the hospital where she visited before.

Eur Heart J Case Rep 2021 Jan 11;5(1):ytaa496. Epub 2020 Dec 11.

Cardiology Department, South Warwickshire NHS Foundation Trust, Lakin Road, Warwick CV34 5BW, UK.

Background: Cholesterol pericarditis (CP) remains a rare pericardial disease characterized by chronic pericardial effusions with high cholesterol concentrations with or without the formation of cholesterol crystals. Effusions are often large and can cause ventricular compression and subsequent pericardial adhesion formation. CP can be idiopathic but has associations with rheumatoid arthritis (RA), tuberculosis and hypothyroidism. Read More

Egg-shell calcification in Pick's disease (chronic constrictive pericarditis).

Radiol Case Rep 2021 Apr 29;16(4):847-849. Epub 2021 Jan 29.

Cardiology, P D Hinduja Hospital, Mumbai, India.

Egg-shell calcification is rare in cases with constrictive pericarditis. It leads to significant right heart failure and the only treatment is surgical excision of the pericardium. We present a case of a 22-year-old-male who was diagnosed to have severe pericardial calcification on the chest X-ray, which eventually led to a diagnosis of constrictive pericarditis and required an early surgical correction.

Our experience of total pericardiectomy for constrictive pericarditis: a comprehensive analysis over a period of 5 years.

Kardiochir Torakochirurgia Pol 2020 Dec 15;17(4):193-197. Epub 2021 Jan 15.

Department of Cardiovascular and Thoracic Surgery, Lokmanya Tilak Municipal Medical College and General Hospital, Mumbai, India.

Introduction: Constrictive pericarditis (CP) usually presents as a result of chronic fibrous pericardial thickening and calcification of the pericardium which causes reduced cardiac output. Despite the lack of prospective studies comparing the different therapeutic strategies, surgical pericardiectomy is a valuable treatment under most circumstances.

Aim: We analyzed our records to highlight the predictors of morbidity and mortality of pericardiectomy and also short-term surgical outcome of the same procedure in a single center. Read More
