Abstract
The European Society of Cardiology published in 2015 the new Guidelines on the management of pericardial diseases. Based on experts' opinions and recent clinical studies of respectable size, the new guidelines thoroughly revisit the criteria for hospitalization and precisely define severe cases. Another highlight regards medication. From now, first-line medical therapy should include the association of colchicine to the traditional non steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs or aspirin. The bi-therapy is recommended as soon as the first episode of pericarditis, for duration of 3 months. The experts also recommend systematically performing a heart ultrasound for any form of pericardial disease and restricting physical activities especially if myocardial damage (perimyocarditis) is associated.
