  • I am so thankful and thrilled to know that someone had found a solution to such a disturbing problem in this country! There are too many women and men that are suffering from this horrendous disease! Before I ordered your program, I used to itch and scratch constantly sometimes all night long. Above all the annoyance it was very embarrassing, especially at work. Since I started your system, I don't use drugs or creams anymore to bring me through the nightmare of yeast infections that was my reality for too long! The constant itching and rashes that sometimes continued for mouths are completely gone. Additionally, the lack of energy and heartburn which I now know were caused by candida overgrowth have also disappeared in a matter of weeks. I feel so rejuvenated and lucky to have found your system. I am also amazed and thankful that your product worked so fast and well. ◆◆◆

Acute pericarditis

  1. 1. Acute pericarditis
  2. 2. • The pericardium is a fibroelastic sac made up of visceral and parietal layers separated by a (potential) space, the pericardial cavity.
  3. 3. • In healthy individuals, the pericardial cavity contains 15 to 50 mL of an ultrafiltrate of plasma
  4. 4. Diseases of the pericardium present clinically in one of four ways • Acute pericarditis • Pericardial effusion without major hemodynamic compromise • Cardiac tamponade • Constrictive pericarditis
  5. 5. • Acute pericarditis is the most common disorder involving the pericardium
  6. 6. Major causes of acute pericarditis • Infections • Cardiac • Autoimmune • Metabolic
  7. 7. • Neoplasm • Drugs • Trauma • Idiopathic
  8. 8. Infections • Viral - Coxsackievirus, echovirus, adenovirus, EBV, CMV, influenza, varicella, rubella, HIV, hepatitis B, mumps, parvovirus B19, vaccina (smallpox vaccination)
  9. 9. • Bacterial - Staphylococcus, Streptococcus, pneumococcus, Haemophilus, Neisseria (gonorrhoeae or meningitidis), Chlamydia (psittaci or trachomatis), Legionella, tuberculosis, Salmonella, Lyme disease
  10. 10. • Mycoplasma
  11. 11. • Fungal - Histoplasmosis, aspergillosis, blastomycosis, coccidiodomycosis, actinomycosis, nocardia, candida
  12. 12. • Parasitic - Echinococcus, amebiasis, toxoplasmosis
  13. 13. Cardiac • Early infarction pericarditis • Late postcardiac injury syndrome (Dressler's syndrome), also seen in other settings (eg, post-myocardial infarction and post-cardiac surgery)
  14. 14. Autoimmune • Rheumatic diseases - Including lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, vasculitis, scleroderma, mixed connective disease
  15. 15. • Other - Granulomatosis with polyangiitis (Wegener's), polyarteritis nodosa, sarcoidosis, inflammatory bowel disease (Crohn's, ulcerative colitis), Whipple's, giant cell arteritis, Behcet's disease, rheumatic fever
  16. 16. Metabolic • Hypothyroidism - Primarily pericardial effusion • Uremia • Ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome
  17. 17. Neoplasm • Metastatic - Lung or breast cancer, Hodgkin's disease, leukemia, melanoma • Primary - Rhabdomyosarcoma, teratoma, fibroma, lipoma, leiomyoma, angioma • Paraneoplastic
  18. 18. Drugs • Procainamide, isoniazid, or hydralazine as part of drug-induced lupus • Other - Cromolyn sodium, dantrolene, methysergide, anticoagulants, thrombolytics, phenytoin, penicillin, phenylbutazone, doxorubicin
  19. 19. Trauma • Blunt • Penetrating
  20. 20. Idiopathic • In most case series, the majority of patients are not found to have an identifiable cause of pericardial disease. • Frequently such cases are presumed to have a viral or autoimmune etiology
  21. 21. Clinical manifestations • The major clinical manifestations of acute pericarditis include :
  22. 22. • Chest pain – typically sharp and pleuritic, improved by sitting up and leaning forward
  23. 23. • Pericardial friction rub – a superficial scratchy or squeaking sound best heard with the diaphragm of the stethoscope over the left sternal border
  24. 24. • Electrocardiogram (ECG) changes – new widespread concave ST segment elevation • In STEM convex ST segment elevation
  25. 25. • The ST segment is usually isoelectric (ie, zero potential as identified by the T-P segment) and has a slight upward concavity.
  26. 26. Acute pericarditis : widespread concave ST elevation
  27. 27. The typical progression of ECG changes in patients with acute pericarditis
  28. 28. • Pericardial effusion------------ tampnade
  29. 29. PROGNOSIS • Patients with acute idiopathic or viral pericarditis have a good long-term prognosis.
  30. 30. • Cardiac tamponade rarely occurs in patients with acute idiopathic pericarditis and is more common in patients with a specific underlying etiology such as malignancy, tuberculosis, or purulent pericarditis.
  31. 31. • Constrictive pericarditis may occur in about 1 percent of patients with acute idiopathic pericarditis, and is also more common in patients with a specific etiology.
  32. 32. Treatment • The therapy of acute pericarditis should be targeted as much as possible to the underlying etiology
  33. 33. • Most patients are treated for a presumptive viral cause with nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS) and colchicine
  34. 34. • Most patients with acute pericarditis can be managed effectively with medical therapy alone.
  35. 35. • However, patients with a large pericardial effusion, a hemodynamically significant pericardial effusion, a suspicion of a bacterial or neoplastic etiology, or evidence of constrictive pericarditis should be evaluated for invasive therapies, such as pericardial drainage and/or pericardiotomy.
