Treatment for Cardiac Tamponade

Chronic cardiac tamponade is a critical disease, which needs an emergency operation.

Patients with cardiac tamponade need an ambulance and medical treatment to be released from compression of the heart.

Medical treatment for chronic cardiac tamponade is puncture to drain pericardial effusion. The procedure is blind puncture using a long needle.

Puncture close to the beating heart is one of the most dangerous procedures, which even experienced cardiologists are reluctant to perform. The procedure is called “pericardiocentesis”.

The alternative procedure is an operation to create a window on the pericardium to drain pericardial effusion to the left pleural cavity in the chest. The operation is called “pericardial fenestration”.

Symptoms of heart failure disappear immediately and dramatically after effective drainage of pericardial effusion.
