Chest X Ray P/A view

Chest X ray P/A view

Cardiomegaly Dextrocardia Right sided pleural effusion

Chest X ray Lateral view

Curvilinear calcification


Both atria were enlarged Thick(4mm), bright, echogenic pericardium. Abrupt anterior motion of interventricular septum in diastole. Increase in early diastolic velocity with rapid deceleration large E wave and very small A wave. Exaggerated respiratory variation of mitral valve and tricuspid valve inflow. MV E amplitude decreases by >25% on inspiration and TV E wave decreases by >25% on expiration. Inferior venacava is dilated without inspiratory reduction in diameter. Hepatic veins are also dilated. Diastolic collapse of RV not seen. Large RA thrombus is seen.

CT of Chest(noncotrast)
Heart & pericardium: Heart & mediastinum is shifted to right. Pericardial thickening & calcification is noted. Lung & pleura: mixed density lesion with fibrosis & evidence of cicatrisation collapse is seen in rt lower lobe in posterior basal segment. Right sided small pleural effusion with pleural thickenig is seen.

Cardiac Catheterization
We have a plan to do cardiac cath. and coronary angiogram.

Confirmed Diagnosis
Chronic Constrictive Pericarditis. Atrial fibrillation. Large right atrial thrombus Right sided basal lung collapse with small pleural effusion

Medical treatment : Salt restriction. Diuretics. Warferin. Definitive treatment : Pericardiectomy

Thank You All

Cardiac Catheterization
End diastolic pressure raised and equal in all chambers. Diastolic filling pattern is a reflection of the dip and plateau pattern in left and right ventricular pressure trace.
