PMID:  8741244     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A 63-year-old male was operated on for chronic heart failure due to myocardial ischemia and constrictive pericarditis after heart surgery. He was in New York Heart Association (NYHA) class III under a large dose of diuretics. He underwent a pericardiectomy and coronary bypass surgery without cardiopulmonary bypass. His cardiac function improved with a patent graft. He is now, 1 year after surgery, in NYHA class I under a tapering dose of diuretics.
