Severe adhesive constrictive pericarditis after coronary artery bypass.
MedLine Citation:
PMID:  6965329     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The patient described presented with typical clinical symptoms of constrictive pericarditis nine months after triple saphenous vein bypass. No cause could be found. Cardiac catheterization confirmed the clinical diagnosis. At pericardiectomy a severely thickened pericardium which was intimately adherent to the heart and great vessels made its resection technically impossible.
