Uremic pericarditis, pericardial effusion, and constrictive pericarditis in end-stage renal disease: Insights and pathophysiology.

Clin Cardiol 2017 Oct 5;40(10):839-846. Epub 2017 Sep 5.

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

A rising prevalence of end-stage renal disease (ESRD) has led to a rise in ESRD-related pericardial syndromes, calling for a better understanding of its pathophysiology, diagnoses, and management. Uremic pericarditis, the most common manifestation of uremic pericardial disease, is a contemporary problem that calls for intensive hemodialysis, anti-inflammatories, and often, drainage of large inflammatory pericardial effusions. Likewise, asymptomatic pericardial effusions can become large and impact the hemodynamics of patients on chronic hemodialysis. Read More

Pericarditis and Pericardial Effusions in End-Stage Renal Disease.

Semin Dial 2016 09 26;29(5):366-73. Epub 2016 May 26.

Division of Nephrology, Tufts Medical Center, Boston, Massachusetts.

Pericarditis and pericardial effusions are not uncommon in patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD). Etiologies include those found in the general population along with two entities unique to patients with kidney disease, namely uremic and dialysis-associated pericarditis. Uremic pericarditis has been arbitrarily defined as pericarditis that develops before or within 8 weeks of initiation of dialysis, while dialysis-associated pericarditis is used to define pericarditis in patients on dialysis for more than 8 weeks.

Acute Effusive Pericarditis due to Horse Chestnut Consumption.

Am J Case Rep 2016 May 4;17:305-8. Epub 2016 May 4.

Department of Cardiology, Sakarya University Training and Research Hospital, Sakarya, Turkey.

Background: There are many well-known causes of pericardial effusion, such as cancer metastasis, bacterial or viral pericarditis, and uremic pericarditis; however, no reports exist in the literature demonstrating a pericardial effusion that led to cardiac tamponade following consumption of an herbal remedy.

Case Report: A 32-year-old male patient was referred to our cardiology outpatient clinic with a complaint of dyspnea. The patient's medical history was unremarkable; however, he had consumed 3 boxes of horse chestnut (Aesculus hippocastanum L) paste over the previous 1. Read More

Development of Acute Pericarditis Associated with New-onset Rheumatoid Arthritis in a Diabetic Patient with Renal Impairment: The Elusive Nature of Uremia.

Intern Med 2016 15;55(8):955-9. Epub 2016 Apr 15.

Division of Nephrology, Department of Medicine, Jichi Medical University, Japan.

Uremic patients may have a variety of organ involvement, however, the precise causality may be impossible to determine in some cases because the symptoms of uremia are also associated with other diseases. With an emphasis on the elusive nature of uremia, we herein describe a 53-year-old man with preexisting renal impairment who developed acute pericarditis with deterioration of his renal function. Hemodialysis was immediately initiated on the presumption of uremia, however, articular symptoms emerged approximately a month later and led to a final diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis, followed by successful withdrawal of hemodialysis.

Department of Internal Medicine, Olive View-UCLA Medical Center, 14445 Olive View Drive, Sylmar, CA 91342-1438, USA.

Pericardial involvement in end-stage renal disease (ESRD) is manifested most commonly as acute uremic or dialysis pericarditis and infrequently as chronic constrictive pericarditis (CCP). We report a 27-year-old patient with a history of uncontrolled hypertension, end-stage-renal disease on hemodialysis, who presented with recurrent ascites, dyspnea, and hypotension. After diagnosis with CCP, a partial pericardiectomy was performed; however, the patient did not improve and a salvage total pericardiectomy soon followed. Read More

Renal replacement therapy in intensive care unit.

J Assoc Physicians India 2009 Oct;57:708-12

Department of Medicine, Gandhi Medical College, Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh.

Acute renal failure requiring renal replacement therapy (RRT) is a frequent complication in critically ill patients with high morbidity and mortality. Early prediction of who is going to need RRT is clinically useful in the intensive care unit (ICU). Patients' with diuretic resistant pulmonary edema, hyperkalemia/metabolic acidosis refractory to medical therapy and uremic complications (pericarditis, encephalopathy, bleeding) are candidates who need RRT as an earlier intervention with continuous haemofiltration, which might be beneficial to the patient and even prevent clinicians from implementing unnecessary, futile and perhaps injurious escalations in medical therapy (e.

Kidney Blood Press Res 2009 12;32(1):17-23. Epub 2009 Feb 12.

Department of Nephrology, Chang Gung Memorial Hospital, Taipei, Taiwan.

Introduction: This observational study investigated the course and outcome of dialysis pericarditis in diabetic dialysis patients, as previous reports found that in contrast to uremic pericarditis, which responds in most cases to intensive hemodialysis, dialysis pericarditis resolves with intensification of hemodialysis in fewer cases.

Methods: From 2002 through 2006, 88 maintenance hemodialysis patients (47 diabetic and 41 non-diabetic) were referred for management of dialysis pericarditis.

Results: Dialysis pericarditis in 85. Read More

Pleural effusion in long-term hemodialysis patients.

Transplant Proc 2007 May;39(4):889-91

Baskent University, Faculty of Medicine, Department of Pulmonary Diseases, Ankara, Turkey.

As a consequence of the expanded use of long-term hemodialysis and extended life spans, complications of chronic renal failure are encountered with an increased frequency among uremic patients. Such patients may develop many thoracic and extrathoracic problems--most frequently uremic pleuritis and pericarditis, uremic pneumonia, infection, and metastatic pulmonary calcification. We retrospectively analyzed the medical records of 257 patients who had received long-term hemodialysis between 1990 and 2006 to better understand the incidence, causes, and clinical features of pleural effusions in this population.

Atherosclerosis is accelerated in dialysis patients and cardiovascular mortality is up to 20 times higher than in the general population. Cardiac troponin T (cTnT) is a sensitive marker of myocardial necrosis and studies have confirmed the superiority of this marker over traditional cardiac enzymes. Elevated cTnT has been observed in patients with various degrees of renal failure and treatment modalities in the absence of an acute coronary event. Read More

Department of Medicine, St John's Mercy Medical Center, St Louis, Missouri 63141, USA.

Pericardial involvement in end-stage renal disease (ESRD) is manifested most commonly as acute uremic or dialysis pericarditis and infrequently as chronic constrictive pericarditis. The causes of uremic and dialysis pericarditis remain uncertain. The clinical and laboratory manifestations of acute pericarditis, pericardial effusion, cardiac tamponade, and constrictive pericarditis in patients with chronic renal failure are similar to those observed in nonuremic patients with similar pericardial involvement, except that chest pain occurs less frequently in those with ESRD.

Successful use of thoracoscopic pericardiectomy in elderly patients with massive pericardial effusion caused by uremic pericarditis.

Am J Kidney Dis 2001 Jun;37(6):1294-8

Departments of Nephrology and Surgery, Saitama Medical School, Saitama, Japan.

We report the use of thoracoscopic pericardiectomy to treat two elderly patients with massive pericardial effusion caused by uremic pericarditis. A 79-year-old man, admitted to our hospital complaining of dyspnea, was diagnosed with end-stage renal failure and began maintenance hemodialysis. Although intensive hemodialysis was performed, the patient could not remain on hemodialysis because of severe hypotension during the procedure. Read More

Diagnostic value of adenosine deaminase activity in pericardial fluids.

J Cardiovasc Surg (Torino) 1999 Aug;40(4):501-4

Department of Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery, Hacettepe University, Faculty of Medicine, Ankara, Turkey.

Background: The activity of adenosine deaminase (ADA) was determined in serum and pericardial fluid of 70 patients (ages 21 to 71 years) with pericardial effusions of various etiologies and in 15 control subjects.

Methods: The patients were subdivided into five groups on the basis of definite diagnosis: 1) 24 patients with tuberculosis; 2) 22 with malignancies; 3) 12 with uremic pericarditis; 4) 12 with purulent pericarditis; 5) 15 control individuals without pericardial disease. The activity of ADA was determined at the same time in serum and cell-free pericardial fluid according to the method of Karker with minor modification. Read More

Percutaneous pericardial biopsy: technique, efficacy, safety, and value in the management of pericardial effusion in children and adolescents.

Pediatr Cardiol 1997 Nov-Dec;18(6):414-8

Departments of Medicine and Pathology, Faculty of Medicine, Kuwait University, P.O. Box 24923, 13110 Safat, Kuwait.

This study describes our technique of nonsurgical percutaneous pericardial biopsy (PPB), its efficacy and safety, and its diagnostic and therapeutic usefulness in the management of pericardial effusion (PE) in children and adolescents. In an 8-year period, 19 selected patients, aged 2 to 20 years, had PPB for evaluation and treatment of PE. Using this procedure we procured multiple biopsy specimens from various areas of the thickened parietal pericardium, and also procured pericardial fluid for investigation. Read More

Thoracic complications in uremic patients and in patients undergoing dialytic treatment: state of the art.

Eur Radiol 1997 ;7(5):708-17

Department of Radiology, S. Orsola University Hospital, Via Massarenti 9, I-40 138 Bologna, Italy.

No organ in the chest is spared the negative effects of uremia. The dialytic treatment itself is often associated with a large array of thoracic complications. We review the main thoracic manifestations of the terminal uremia from the radiological point of view, such as: uremic pleuritis and pericarditis, uremic pneumonia, renal osteodystrophy, infections, and metastatic pulmonary calcifications.

Department of Internal Medicine, National Cheng-Kung University Hospital, Tainan, Taiwan, R.O.C.

Pericarditis is a frequent and serious complication of chronic uremia. The uremic pericarditis can get much improvement by aggressive heparin-free hemodialysis therapy. However, the presenting symptoms and signs are too nonspecific to identify at early stage. Read More
