A case of pericardial effusion , pleural and abdominal effusion in congestive – heart failure
A middle-aged woman, who was hospitalised by difficult breathing at 8 o’clock in the evening.On ultrasound scanning we found out that she had multi-place effusion such as pericardial effusion resulted in cardiac temponate and pleural abdominal effusion too, caused the breathing problem actually. According to an emergency physician, she had a severe congestive – heart failure.
But the problem is that why she’s been suffering from the pericardial effusion together. Some cardiologists said that ” Pericardial effusion forms only with elevation of the right-sided filling pressure in the heart. In patients with biventricular failure, there is no evidence that elevated left-sided pressure, in the absence of elevated right-sided pressure, can cause a pericardial effusion”. Anyway, please take a closer look at the following video that you could see the effusion happened in cardial pleural spaces and in abdomen altogether.
