"
12/01/2007 - "Because constriction may be transient in a small proportion of patients, particularly those with exudative effusions, the initial treatment for constrictive pericarditis should be conservative, with loop diuretic therapy to manage volume expansion and edema and the use of colchicine, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory agents, or, if necessary, glucocorticoid therapy for active inflammation.

01/01/1983 - "There was no difference in radiopacity and the type and incidence of adverse reactions were similar, but the frequency was significantly higher (p less than 0.05) with Vascoray in patients with constrictive pericarditis, dissecting aortic aneurysm, and primary pulmonary hypertension. "
|9.||RNA (Ribonucleic Acid)IBA
11/01/1995 - "In this study of 15 patients with pure isolated constrictive pericarditis, we attempted to evaluate the diagnostic value of two non-invasive methods not usually employed in this indication: radionuclide angiography (RNA) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). "
11/01/1995 - "These results indicate that RNA and MRI are complementary non-invasive methods, and can provide the functional and anatomical information required for the diagnosis of constrictive pericarditis."
|10.||Ethyl Ether (Ether)IBA
06/10/1989 - "Early medical treatment with or without pericardiocentesis is effective in most cases of tamponade, but constrictive pericarditis demands pericardiectomy. "
06/01/1997 - "We concluded that pericardiectomy is a very effective treatment for constrictive pericarditis but a more careful follow up is required especially in cases complicated with other major problems because cardiac function is not so recovered as normal level after surgery due probably to readhesion and fibrotic changes of the myocardium."
09/01/1987 - "We conclude that pericardiectomy is an effective treatment of symptomatic chronic constrictive pericarditis because it provides an important and durable improvement in symptoms and functional Class, and it has a low operative mortality."
12/01/2007 - "Pericardiectomy is a useful procedure for constrictive pericarditis and was beneficial to all the patients in this study with an improvement in their functional capacity. "
12/01/1997 - "Pericardiectomy is the only effective surgical procedure for constrictive pericarditis, but we have often experienced a lack of significant improvement of hemodynamic parameters, this being attributed to the presence of residual constriction. "

08/01/1987 - "The patient had complete resolution of signs and symptoms of constrictive pericarditis after removal of the patch electrodes and pericardial stripping. "
