Constrictive pericarditis (CP) is considered to be a process of inflammation of the pericardium, which often leads to thickened, scarred, and calcified tissues that lim- its diastolic ventricular filling. Generally, a pericardiec- tomy is the only ef

A total of 1184 patients with pericarditis were evaluated, 218 of whom had tamponade. Of these 218, 190 underwent combined pericardiocentesis and catheterization. Fifteen of these patients had effusive–constrictive pericarditis and were included in

Twelve of the 14 had preoperative cardiac catheterization. All demonstrated the findings considered diagnostic of constrictive pericarditis: (1) an elevated right atrial pressure, usually with an M- or W-shaped contour; (2) an abnormally high right v
