Pericarditis constrictiva after aortic valve replacement simulating tricuspid stenosis
European Journal of Cardio-Thoracic Surgery
Pericarditis constrictiva after cardiac surgery is rare and may occasionally lead to congestive heart failure. The case of a 29-year-old patient is described who presented with pericarditis constrictiva after aortic valve replacement with localized tamponade, causing functional tricuspid stenosis. Pericardiectomy as the treatment of choice was curative.
