    Abstract

    Seven days after undergoing a thoracotomy and repair of a cardiac laceration, a 22-year-old patient develops tachycardia, substernal chest pain (worse on inspiration) and fatigue. He is afebrile and hemodynamically stable. On auscultation, a pericardial friction rub is discovered. Electrocardiography demonstrates ST segment elevation throughout the pericardium. Helical computed tomography scan shows no evidence of a pulmonary embolism. Chest x-ray reveals expanded bilateral lungs and a normal cardiac silhouette. Which of the following would be the most appropriate management approach? (A) Administration of a nonsteroidal antiinflammatory agent (B) Pericardiocentesis (C) Reexploration (D) Insertion of a pulmonary artery catheter (E) Cardiac catheterization
