The role of multi-modality cardiovascular imaging in a patient presenting with acute liver failure secondary to constrictive pericarditis: a case report.

Eur Heart J Case Rep 2022 Jun 7;6(6):ytac217. Epub 2022 Jun 7.

University Hospitals North Midlands NHS Foundation Trust, Newcastle Rd, Stoke-on-Trent ST4 6QG, UK.

Background: Constrictive pericarditis is a rare cause of heart failure which often presents a diagnostic challenge to clinicians.

Case Summary: We describe the case of a 62-year-old male who presented to our institution with symptoms and signs suggestive of acute liver failure. Abdominal imaging demonstrated congestive hepatopathy. Read More

Anterior Pericardiectomy for Postinfective Constrictive Pericarditis: Intermediate-Term Outcomes.

Ann Thorac Surg 2018 10 16;106(4):1178-1181. Epub 2018 May 16.

Department of Cardiovascular Surgery, Shahid Gangalal National Heart Centre, Kathmandu, Nepal.

Background: Posttubercular constrictive pericarditis is prevalent pericardial disease in developing countries. Pericardiectomy is the treatment of choice but considered a procedure of high morbidity and mortality.

Methods: From January 2003 to December 2013 we performed 130 pericardiectomies. Read More

A rare case of effusive constrictive cholesterol pericarditis: a case report and review.

Case Rep Med 2013 1;2013:439505. Epub 2013 Apr 1.

Cardiology Service, San Antonio Military Medical Center, Fort Sam Houston, San Antonio, TX 78234, USA.

Effusive constrictive cholesterol pericarditis is exceedingly rare. Most cases have an unclear etiology but can be associated with rheumatoid arthritis, tuberculosis infection, and hypothyroidism. The hallmark of the effusion is the distinctively high levels of cholesterol. Read More

Spontaneous aortic arch rupture with pseudoaneurysm and constrictive-effusive pericarditis formation.

Interact Cardiovasc Thorac Surg 2007 Feb 10;6(1):139-41. Epub 2006 Oct 10.

Timisoara Institute for Cardiovascular Diseases, Str. Gh. Adam, Nr.13A, 1900 Timisoara, Romania.

Spontaneous aortic rupture, without any history of previous thoracic trauma, infection or acute thoracic pain is an extremely rare and potentially life-threatening event. Its diagnosis, in the absence of acute symptoms, is usually delayed and relies on secondary signs. While the etiology is atherosclerotic in most cases, the exact mechanisms of rupture have only recently been uncovered. Read More

Rapid progression of pericardial calcification in a patient with end-stage renal disease.

Catheter Cardiovasc Interv 2005 May;65(1):43-6

Section of Cardiology, Hospital of Saint Raphael-Yale University School of Medicine, 1450 Chapel Street, New Haven, CT 06511, USA.

Dialysis pericarditis is a relatively uncommon cause of pericardial constriction and may be found in patients with end-stage renal disease receiving adequate renal replacement therapy. We present a patient with end-stage renal disease maintained on chronic peritoneal dialysis who developed severe myopericardial calcification over a 2-month period demonstrated by sequential chest computed tomographic scanning. The characteristic hemodynamic findings of constrictive-effusive pericarditis, obtained during cardiac catheterization, are presented and discussed. Read More

Cardiac angiosarcoma: an unusual presentation simulating mitral stenosis and constrictive-effusive pericarditis.

J Am Soc Echocardiogr 2003 Dec;16(12):1331-3

Section of Cardiology, Baylor College of Medicine, The Methodist DeBakey Heart Center, Houston, TX 77030, USA.

This case report details a patient with a cardiac angiosarcoma who had an unusual presentation with hemodynamics consistent with mitral stenosis and constrictive-effusive pericarditis. It illustrates how transesophageal echocardiography adds to the information obtained from transthoracic imaging and hemodynamics in this unusual presentation of a cardiac tumor. Read More

Constrictive pericarditis as a complication of coronary artery bypass surgery.

Br Heart J 1984 Feb;51(2):205-10

Although it is now recognised as a rare complication of cardiac surgery, constrictive pericarditis was diagnosed in three patients after coronary artery bypass surgery. The time interval between cardiac surgery and the development of constrictive features varied from two to six weeks. All three patients presented with severe congestive heart failure. Read More
