Cardiac tamponade: an educational review.

Eur Heart J Acute Cardiovasc Care 2020 Jul 6:2048872620939341. Epub 2020 Jul 6.

University Cardiology, AOU Città della Salute e della Scienza di Torino, Italy.

Cardiac tamponade is a pericardial syndrome characterised by an impairment of the diastolic filling of the ventricles causing reduction of cardiac output, usually producing signs and symptoms of cardiac arrest, if untreated. The main causes of cardiac tamponade include percutaneous cardiac interventions, malignacies, infectious/inflammatory causes, mechanical complications of myocardial infarction and aortic dissection. The diagnosis of cardiac tamponade is a clinical diagnosis based on a suggestive history and clinical presentation with worsening dyspnoea, distended jugular veins, muffled heart sounds and pulsus paradoxus, and should be confirmed by echocardiography.

[Cardiac Tamponade as Cardio-Oncologic Emergency Disease].

Gan To Kagaku Ryoho 2020 Jun;47(6):881-884

Dept. of Medical Oncology, Faculty of Medicine, University of Tsukuba.

The causes of cardiac tamponade include neoplastic pericarditis as well as radiation-induced, drug-induced, purulent and iatrogenic pericarditis. Since we can get access to the advanced cancer therapy these days, some of the cardiac tamponade patients can survive longer if we can manage their pericardial effusion well. Here, we will summarize the clinical evidence in cardiac tamponade in patients with malignant tumor, and will discuss about its presentation, diagnosis and management. Read More

Massimo Imazio

Kardiol Pol 2020 05 11;78(5):396-403. Epub 2020 May 11.

University Cardiology, AOU Città della Salute e della Scienza di Torino,Torino, Italy.

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

Giant Pericardial Lipoma Inducing Cardiac Tamponade and New Onset Atrial Flutter.

Case Rep Cardiol 2020 2;2020:6937126. Epub 2020 Mar 2.

Department of Internal Medicine, Henry Ford Macomb Hospital, Clinton Township, MI 48038, USA.

Although pericardial lipomas are both rare and benign, rapid or excessive growth can induce potentially fatal conditions such as pericarditis, arrhythmia, and cardiac tamponade. This case illustrates an example where a 65-year-old with atypical chest tightness unveiled a 10 × 15 cm anterior pericardial mass with circumferential effusion and progressive deterioration to cardiac tamponade. Initial transthoracic echocardiogram imaging was technically difficult in this patient due to habitus and body mass, which failed to illustrate underlying effusion. Read More

Multimodality imaging in patients with post-cardiac injury syndrome.

Heart 2020 May 11;106(9):639-646. Epub 2020 Mar 11.

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.

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

University Cardiology, Cardiovascular and Thoracic Department, AOU Città della Salute e della Scienza di Torino, Torino, Italy,; Department of Medical Science, University of Torino, Torino, Italy.

Cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) offers the capability to objectively detect pericarditis by identifying pericardial thickening, edema/inflammation by Short-TI Inversion Recovery-T2 weighted (STIR-T2w) imaging, edema/inflammation or fibrosis by late gadolinium enhancement (LGE), and presence of pericardial effusion. This is especially helpful for the diagnosis of recurrent pericarditis. Aim of the present paper is to assess the diagnostic accuracy of CMR findings as well as their potential prognostic value for the diagnosis of recurrent pericarditis. Read More

Internal Medicine, University of South Dakota Sanford School of Medicine, Sioux Falls, South Dakota, USA.

Pericardial effusions resulting in a cardiac tamponade have previously been reported with oesophageal cancers. However, most of these cases have been reported in association with radiation and chemotherapy. Rarely as oesophageal pericardial fistuls (OPF) have been reported as the culprits in causing pericardial effusions in patients with oesophageal cancers. Read More

The First Report of Purulent Pericarditis Associated with Aortic Stent-graft Infection Caused by Methicillin-susceptible Staphylococcus aureus.

Intern Med 2019 Nov 10;58(21):3103-3106. Epub 2019 Jul 10.

Department of Cardiology, Kanazawa University Graduate School of Medicine, Japan.

We herein report the first case of purulent pericarditis associated with aortic stent-graft infection in an 80-year-old Japanese man that was caused by methicillin-susceptible Staphylococcus aureus, which appropriate antibiotics failed to treat. The detailed clinical course and autopsy images revealed that purulent pericarditis associated with aortic stent-graft infection caused cardiac tamponade and eventually led to mortality. We therefore suggest that surgical procedures, including drainage, should be introduced for such cases. Read More

Acupuncture related acute purulent pericarditis masquerading uremic pericarditis.

J Community Hosp Intern Med Perspect 2019 19;9(3):230-234. Epub 2019 Jun 19.

Department of Cardiology, St Mary Medical Center, Langhorne, PA, USA.

We are reporting a rare case of acupuncture-related acute pericarditis in an old-aged gentleman due to Staphylococcus aureus infection who was successfully managed with drainage of pericardial fluid and broad-spectrum antibiotics. We also reviewed the literature and found cardiac tamponade as the most common acupuncture-related cardiac complication, followed by infective endocarditis, bacterial abscess, and infected myxoma. There was no available literature on post-acupuncture acute pericarditis. Read More

Anti-proteinase 3-positive Eosinophilic Granulomatosis with Polyangiitis Revealed by Cardiac Tamponade.

Intern Med 2019 Oct 27;58(20):3045-3050. Epub 2019 Jun 27.

Department of Internal Medicine, Toyonaka Municipal Hospital, Japan.

Eosinophilic granulomatosis with polyangiitis (EGPA) is a rare systemic vasculitis characterized by asthma, eosinophilia, and diffuse eosinophilic infiltration. Although cardiovascular involvement is common and a leading cause of EGPA-related mortality, severe pericarditis-led cardiac tamponade occurs rarely. We herein report a 72-year-old man with anti-proteinase 3 (anti-PR3) anti-neutrophil cytoplasmic antibody (ANCA)-positive EGPA diagnosed by the presence of cardiac tamponade, which responded quickly to pericardiocentesis and a single administration of prednisolone.

Clinical significance of myocardial involvement in acute idiopathic pericarditis.

Cardiol J 2019 Jun 21. Epub 2019 Jun 21.

Rabin Medical Center, Beilinson Hospital, 37 Jabotinski st, 49100 Petah Tikva, Israel.

Background: Acute idiopathic pericarditis (AIP) is frequently accompanied by myocardial involvement (AIPM). Although in acute myocarditis, the myocardial inflammation can lead to life-threatening complications, the outcome of patients with AIPM has been described as good. It remains unclear if a good prognosis of patients with AIPM reflects mild myocardial involvement or good medical management. Read More

Department of Internal Medicine and Cardiology, Kitasato University School of Medicine, Kanagawa, Japan.

A 50-year-old woman was admitted with congestive heart failure due to cardiac tamponade, which was caused by acute pericarditis with pericardial effusion. Although images of contrast computed tomography (CT) obtained two weeks prior to admission had shown no abnormality, CT on admission showed a mediastinal tumor communicating with the pericardial cavity. It had rapidly appeared in a few weeks. Read More

Am J Trop Med Hyg 2019 08;101(2):448-450

Department of Medicine, All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi, India.

Dengue hemorrhagic fever is one of the most commonly encountered mosquito-borne viral infections of humans worldwide with multiple reported outbreaks. Cardiac involvement is a known manifestation of the disease usually presenting as rhythm abnormalities, myocarditis, or pericardial effusion, which may be clinically asymptomatic. We describe a case of a 30-year-old woman who presented to us with high-grade fever, headache, retro-orbital pain, generalized maculopapular rash with bilateral pleural effusion, and hypotension.
