Noninfectious pericarditis: management challenges for cardiologists.

Authors:
Massimo Imazio

Kardiol Pol 2020 May 11;78(5):396-403. Epub 2020 May 11.

The aim of this review is to deal with management challenges related to diagnosis and therapy of noninfectious pericarditis. In the European countries in which a low prevalence of tuberculosis is noted, determining the etiology of pericarditis is essentially aimed at the exclusion of the most common causes, which may require a specific therapy and are associated with an increased risk of complications: systemic autoimmune or autoinflammatory diseases, postcardiac injury syndrome (5%-20%), neoplastic pericardial involvement (5%-10%), tuberculosis (about 5%), and rarely purulent pericarditis in less than 5% of cases. In developing countries that report a high prevalence of tuberculosis, this condition is the most common cause of pericardial diseases. Read More

Tricuspid Valve Regurgitation in Patients Undergoing Pericardiectomy for Constrictive Pericarditis.

Semin Thorac Cardiovasc Surg 2020 May 7. Epub 2020 May 7.

Department of Cardiovascular Surgery, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minnesota.

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 pericarditis between January 2000 and December 2016. We excluded cases of radiation induced constrictive pericarditis, tuberculous-related constrictive pericarditis, and concomitant tricuspid valve intervention. Read More

Multimodality approach to the diagnosis and management of constrictive pericarditis.

Echocardiography 2020 Apr 2;37(4):632-636. Epub 2020 Apr 2.

Harrington Heart & Vascular Institute, University Hospital Cleveland Medical Center, Cleveland, Ohio.

Despite advances in cardiovascular imaging, the diagnosis of constrictive pericarditis remains challenging. A multimodality approach to the diagnosis of CP is essential to (a) fully assess the extent of pericardial thickening and calcification, (b) detect the functional and hemodynamic consequences of the constricting pericardium, and (c) implement the optimal management strategy in these often complex cases. This case-based review highlights the role and diagnostic ambiguities of multimodality imaging. Read More

The effect of colchicine on the echocardiographic constrictive physiology after coronary artery bypass graft surgery.

Echocardiography 2020 Mar 16;37(3):399-403. Epub 2020 Mar 16.

School of Medicine, Shahid Sadoughi University of Medical Sciences, Yazd, Iran.

Background: Constrictive physiology is a transitory condition that could lead to constrictive pericarditis, which is a rare complication after open-heart surgery. Anti-inflammatory drugs like colchicine are recommended for prevention of constrictive pericarditis; however, there is no evidence about the effect of colchicine on constrictive pericarditis. Thus, the aim of this study is to evaluate the preventive effect of colchicine on the incidence of echocardiographic constrictive physiology after open-heart surgery. Read More

Center for the Diagnosis and Treatment of Pericardial Diseases, Department of Cardiovascular Medicine, Heart and Vascular Institute, Cleveland Clinic, Cleveland, Ohio, United States

This review article is focused on the role of echocardiography, cardiac CT and cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) imaging in diagnosing and managing patients with post-cardiac injury syndrome (PCIS). Clinically, the spectrum of pericardial diseases under PCIS varies not only in form and severity of presentation but also in the timing varying from weeks to months, thus making it difficult to diagnose. Pericarditis developing after recent or remote myocardial infarction, cardiac surgery or ablation if left untreated or under-treated could worsen into complicated pericarditis which can lead to decreased quality of life and increased morbidity.

Cardiac output during exercise increases by as much as fivefold in the untrained man, and by as much as eightfold in the elite athlete. Increasing venous return is a critical but much overlooked component of the physiological response to exercise. Cardiac disorders such as constrictive pericarditis, restrictive cardiomyopathy and pulmonary hypertension are recognised to impair preload and cause exercise limitation; however, the effects of peripheral venous obstruction on cardiac function have not been well described.

The aim of this paper is dual - to review the relevant literature on pathology of radiation induced heart disease (RIHD), and to present an illustrative case of our own. Therapeutic ionizing radiation, such as that used in the treatment of Hodgkin´s lymphoma and cancers of left breast, lungs, esophagus, and thymus, can cause cardiac damage that may take several years to manifest. The spectrum of RIHD is broad and includes [1] pericarditis and pericardial effusion; [2] endocardial fibrosis and valvular dysfunction; [3] nonischemic myocardial fibrosis; [4] obstructive coronary artery disease with resultant myocardial ischemia; [5] damage to the great vessels; and [6] conduction system dysfunction.

Management of Acute and Recurrent Pericarditis: JACC State-of-the-Art Review.

J Am Coll Cardiol 2020 Jan;75(1):76-92

VCU Pauley Heart Center, Virginia Commonwealth University, Richmond, Virginia. Electronic address:

Pericarditis refers to the inflammation of the pericardial layers, resulting from a variety of stimuli triggering a stereotyped immune response, and characterized by chest pain associated often with peculiar electrocardiographic changes and, at times, accompanied by pericardial effusion. Acute pericarditis is generally self-limited and not life-threatening; yet, it may cause significant short-term disability, be complicated by either a large pericardial effusion or tamponade, and carry a significant risk of recurrence. The mainstay of treatment of pericarditis is represented by anti-inflammatory drugs. Read More

Vnitr Lek 2019 ;65(10):624-629

Pericardial diseases have been until recently relatively neglected entity; however, there has been a markedly increased interest in these disorders in the last decade due to new diagnostic as well as therapeutic options. Various clinical manifestations of pericardial diseases may be generally grouped into pericardial syndromes including pericarditis, pericardial effusion, cardiac tamponade and constrictive pericarditis. In this review, the comprehensive analysis of acute and recurrent pericarditis is presented. Read More

Hemodynamics of constrictive pericarditis and restrictive cardiomyopathy.

Catheter Cardiovasc Interv 2020 May 6;95(6):1240-1248. Epub 2020 Jan 6.

Veterans Administration Long Beach Health Care System, University of California, Irvine, California.

Constrictive pericarditis (CP) and restrictive cardiomyopathy (RCM) are indolent disabling diseases of diastolic function. The two conditions share common pathophysiologic features, resulting in similar and overlapping clinical presentations, echocardiographic findings, and hemodynamic characteristics. However, their clinical course differs, as CP is surgically curable whereas RCM is a chronic condition managed medically. Read More

Surgery for Patients with Radiation-Induced Constrictive Pericarditis.

Heart Surg Forum 2019 12 3;22(6):E466-E469. Epub 2019 Dec 3.

Department of Cardiovascular Surgery, PLA General Hospital, Institute of Cardiac Surgery, Beijing, China.

Radiation-induced heart disease (RIHD) is a major side effect of chest radiation therapy (RT). Most changes of pericardium will occur within a few weeks after receiving chest RT, while most of them will take decades or more to become constrictive pericarditis. Pericardiectomy is an effective treatment method. Read More

Constrictive epicarditis.

Tunis Med 2019 Jun;97(6):818-821

Constrictive pericarditis is relatively uncommon. Constrictive phenomenon involves in the majority of cases the two layers of the pericardium namely the parietal pericardium and the visceral one. Chronic epicarditis is a distinct and very scarce form where only the visceral pericardium is interested by the pathologic process. Read More

Another Whipple's triad? Pericardial, myocardial and valvular disease in an unusual case presentation from a Canadian perspective.

BMC Cardiovasc Disord 2019 12 23;19(1):312. Epub 2019 Dec 23.

Department of Critical Care Medicine, University of Calgary, Calgary, AB, Canada.

Background: Whipple's disease is a clinically relevant multi-system disorder that is often undiagnosed given its elusive nature. We present an atypical case of Whipple's disease involving pan-valvular endocarditis and constrictive pericarditis, requiring cardiac intervention. A literature review was also performed assessing the prevalence of atypical cases of Whipple's disease. Read More

ABO blood group influences risk of venous thromboembolism and myocardial infarction.

J Thromb Thrombolysis 2019 Dec 9. Epub 2019 Dec 9.

Department of Cardiology, Xuzhou Central Hospital, Xuzhou Clinical School of Xuzhou Medical University, Affiliated Xuzhou Hospital of Medical College of Southeast University, Xuzhou, Jiangsu, China.

ABO blood group has been associated with various disease phenotypes. However, ABO blood group to influence patients in risk of venous thromboembolic events (VTEs) and arterial thromboembolic events (ATEs) remains controversial after evaluation in several reports. To fully assess effects of ABO blood group on VTEs and ATEs, we conducted a cross-sectional study and investigated the interaction between blood group and age, and between blood group and sex on the prevalence of VTEs and ATEs.

"An imprisoned heart" arrested by pillory of calcified ring surrounding both ventricles: An extremely rare case of constrictive pericarditis.

Echocardiography 2019 12 23;36(12):2265-2267. Epub 2019 Nov 23.

Division of Cardiovascular Medicine, Department of Internal Medicine, Kobe University Graduate School of Medicine, Kobe, Japan.

We report the case of a 63-year-old man who was admitted to our hospital due to progressive dyspnea and leg edema. Echocardiography and cardiac computed tomography revealed localized severe pericardial calcification surrounding the basal segments of both ventricles, which caused pericardial constriction. Right heart catheter examination confirmed typical hemodynamic findings of constrictive pericarditis and subsequently led to the definite diagnosis of constrictive pericarditis. Read More

Effusive-Constrictive Pericarditis: Doppler Findings.

Curr Cardiol Rep 2019 11 22;21(11):144. Epub 2019 Nov 22.

Department of Cardiovascular Medicine, Mayo Clinic, 200 First St SW, Rochester, MN, 55905, USA.

Purpose Of Review: To review the echo-Doppler findings in effusive-constrictive pericarditis (ECP). ECP corresponds to the coexistence of a hemodynamically significant pericardial effusion and markedly reduced compliance of the pericardium, manifested by constrictive physiology post-pericardiocentesis.

Recent Findings: We summarize herein the recent observations regarding the prevalence of ECP based on echocardiography as well as the pre- and post-pericardiocentesis echo-Doppler features of ECP. Read More
