Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Congenital pericardial defect is a rare cardiac defect with variable clinical presentations. It is usually an unexpected finding during cardiac surgery or autopsy. The clinical detection of congenital absence of pericardium is important because of its life-threatening complications such as fatal myocardial strangulation, myocardial ischaemia and sudden death. We present a patient with the incidental finding of left-sided partial defect of the pericardium during evaluation of chest pain.
