Heart & Cardiology/Re admitted
I have no previous heart issues. I was admitted with a large periocardial effusion which was drained (1 liter bloody fluid ) the following morning. I. Was dischargesd the following day. Now ,4 days later I am back on the telemetry unit with fluid reforming and the right chamber collapsing due to the fluid. Tomorrow they will biopsy the pericardium to determine what is causing the sudden inflammation and create a window in the pericardium. I am already seeing a rheumatologist,immunology doctor and ent to try to figure out the cause of chronic sinus inflamation since oct. all blood work is normal except inflammation which is highs. The consensus is some kind of autoimmune problem is going on but they are still trying to figure out the specifics
Is it likely that the recent issue with the pericardium is part of the sinus issues?
Is the collapse of the chamber tampanade even though my EKG is ok and there are no arythmeas?
