  • Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma

    Non-Hodgkin lymphomas (NHL) are one of the common hematological malignancies that can affect the heart usually in the form of pericardial effusion.[] Disseminated malignancies and lymphomas rarely involve the heart.[]

  • Adenocarcinoma of the Breast

    Adenocarcinoma of the breast is a term encompassing several types of tumors such as ductal and lobular carcinomas. An asymptomatic painless mass is usually the only symptom in the early stages, whereas an array of constitutional and localized symptoms may be seen in more advanced disease.

    Abstract BACKGROUND To determine the effects of dendritic cells (DCs) and cytokine-induced killer (CIK) cells in patients with malignant pericardial effusion.[] Abstract BACKGROUND: Malignant pericardial effusion occurs in one tenth of all cancers.[] Pericardiocentesis is usually needed to establish aetiology, the malignant nature of pericardial effusion being confirmed by identification of malignant cells at cytological[]

  • Malignant Pericardial Effusion

    Malignant pericardial effusion is a common and serious manifestation in malignancies.[] […] with other causes of pericardial effusions.[] PATIENTS: Fourteen consecutive patients with malignant pericardial effusion.[]

  • Cardiac Tamponade

    Pericardiocentesis is usually needed to establish aetiology, the malignant nature of pericardial effusion being confirmed by identification of malignant cells at cytological[] pericardial effusion and for patients with cardiac chambers compression signs.[] Malignant pericardial effusion was the most common etiology and accounted for pericardial tamponade in 14 of the 36 patients (39%).[]

  • Pericardiocentesis

    AIM: To evaluate the role and outcome of pericardiocentesis with intrapericardial cisplatin instillation for malignant pericardial effusion resulting from esophageal cancer[] Twenty patients had developed malignant pericardial effusion at the time of primary cancer diagnosis. Recurrence rate after pericardiocentesis was 33%.[] We present a case in which a CT-guided approach was used to successfully drain a malignant pericardial effusion in the emergent setting.[]
