  • treatment consists of administration of aspirin or other nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs.[revespcardiol.org]
  • If found, treatment should be aimed at the causative illness.[the-hospitalist.org]
  • Treatment Treatment for viral or idiopathic pericarditis Anti-inflammatory medicines such as ibuprofen are usually given to ease the pain and reduce inflammation.[patient.info]
  • Early diagnosis and prompt treatment markedly enhance the chance of complete resolution of the hemodynamic complications of pericardial disease.[link.springer.com]


  • Treatment and prognosis Conservative management with non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agents and follow-up is usually performed.[radiopaedia.org]
  • What is the outlook (prognosis) if you have pericarditis? Most people with viral or idiopathic pericarditis recover fully within a few weeks, without any complications. However, in some cases the symptoms return 'on and off' for several months.[patient.info]

  • Perhaps with successful reperfusion of the infarct-related vessel, transmural myocardial necrosis is prevented and with it the development of pericarditis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Pericarditis Prevention Since most causes of pericarditis are idiopathic and are never found, it is difficult to predict or prevent this disease process.[emedicinehealth.com]
  • The scarring constricts the movement of the heart during each heartbeat and can prevent the heart from expanding to accept blood returning from the body after each heartbeat.[medicinenet.com]
  • However a lot of fluid may prevent the heart chambers from filling normally and prevents the heart from pumping blood properly. This is called cardiac tamponade and is a life-threatening problem unless the fluid is quickly drained.[patient.info]
  • Deterrence/Prevention Early intervention with dialysis may prevent the development of uremic pericarditis. Maintenance of adequate dialysis therapy lessens the likelihood of a pt’s developing dialysis-associated pericarditis. 56.[slideshare.net]
