    The percutaneous treatment of pericardial effusion resulting in cardiac tamponade has undergone an evolution in recent years with the use of less invasive drainage techniques in selected cases. To determine optimal therapy modalities for oncology patients with malignant pericardial tamponade...

    Herniation of intra-abdominal contents into the pericardial cavity is rare. We describe one such case occurring after creation of a pericardioperitoneal window for drainage of a pericardial effusion. The diagnosis of an intrapericardial hernia should be considered in patients presenting with...
