Pericardial disease: Pericarditis - Theme from the E-Journal of Cardiology Practice

Both acute and chronic pericarditis are difficult to manage and remain a challenge for the cardiologist in daily practice.

Indications for pericardiocentesis have been revised and difficult questions have arisen concerning patients using older and more recent anticoagulant drugs. The pericardium is also often involved in malignant and auto-immune diseases.

This series looks at this disease and reviews the current state-of-the-art in its identification and treatment.
