[Early constrictive pericarditis after coronary revascularization. Apropos of a case].

Academic Article


  • The authors report a case of severe constrictive pericarditis occurring 6 weeks after coronary bypass surgery and in the absence of any other predisposing factor. The diagnosis was confirmed by CT scan and cardiac catheterisation which showed signs of a diastole. The patient died despite early surgical reoperation because of the severity of the pericardial fibrosis.
