pericardial window

A pericardial window is a procedure done on the sac around the heart. Surgically removing a small part of the sac lets doctors drain excess fluid from the sac.

 

A pericardial window can help decrease the fluid around the heart. It can also help diagnose the source of the extra fluid. Conditions that might need a pericardial window include:

 

  • Infection of the heart or pericardial sac
  • Cancer
  • Inflammation of the pericardial sac due to a heart attack
  • Injury
  • Immune system disease
  • Reactions to certain drugs
  • Radiation
  • Metabolic causes, like kidney failure with uremia
