Early detection and treatment of cardiac tamponade is crucial in management of patients after cardiac surgery. Because of the atypical features of this condition and paucity of data on relative frequency of different signs, we evaluated the sensitivity of various clinical, echocardiographic, and hemodynamic signs. We retrospectively evaluated the relative frequency of clinical, echocardiographic, and hemodynamic signs in 29 patients with cardiac tamponade after cardiac surgery. In our study 66… CONTINUE READING
