- Persistent Hemopericardial Effusion in a 54-Year-Old Man. Tremaine, Ladd Alex; Gaertner, Erich M. // Archives of Pathology & Laboratory Medicine;Jan2005, Vol. 129 Issue 1, p117
This article focuses on a persistent hemopericardial effusion in a 54-year-old man. A 54-year-old man was admitted to our institution for acute worsening of dyspnea and chest pain. Five months earlier, the patient had been diagnosed as having idiopathic pericarditis after presenting with chest...
- Cardiac tamponade as an independent condition affecting the relationship between the plasma B-type natriuretic peptide levels and cardiac function. Minai, Kosuke; Komukai, Kimiaki; Arase, Satoshi; Nagoshi, Tomohisa; Matsuo, Seiichiro; Ogawa, Kazuo; Kayama, Yosuke; Inada, Keiichi; Tanigawa, Shin-ichi; Takemoto, Tomoyuki; Sekiyama, Hiroshi; Date, Taro; Ogawa, Takayuki; Taniguchi, Ikuo; Yoshimura, Michihiro // Heart & Vessels;Jul2013, Vol. 28 Issue 4, p510
Plasma B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP) is finely regulated by the cardiac function and several extracardiac factors. Therefore, the relationship between the plasma BNP levels and the severity of heart failure sometimes seems inconsistent. The purpose of the present study was to investigate the...

Pompilio, Giulio; Filippini, Sara; Agrifoglio, Marco; Merati, Elisa; Lauri, Gianfranco; Salis, Stefano; Alamanni, Francesco; Parolari, Alessandro // European Journal of Cardio-Thoracic Surgery;May2011, Vol. 39 Issue 5, pe107
Abstract: Objective: We aimed to identify independent risk factors predisposing toward postoperative surgical or percutaneous pericardial drainage following cardiac surgery, and to assess late survival. Methods: A retrospective review of preoperative, intra-operative and postoperative variables...
