Abstract

Large recurrent pericardial effusion can be managed by repeat pericardiocentesis or by surgery. A relatively new, catheter-based method uses a balloon catheter (percutaneous balloon pericardiotomy) for drainage from the pericardial sac to the pleural space. As an alternative, we present a newly developed device: Cutting pericardiotome.
