Post pacemaker insertion pericarditis is a rare form of post cardiac injury syndrome. It is an inflammatory process involving the pericardium and/or pleura due to a recent cardiac injury. Post cardiac injury syndrome may develop after myocardial infarction (Dressler syndrome), cardiac surgery or trauma. However, in rare cases it can occur following minor cardiac procedures. We report a case of a 74-year-old male with post-cardiac injury syndrome 4 weeks post permanent pacemaker implantation. A…

Post-cardiac Injury Syndrome Following Permanent Dual-Chamber Pacemaker Implantation
A case report is presented of a 64-year-old female with a history of sick sinus syndrome managed with a dual-chamber pacemaker who presented with post-cardiac injury syndrome after three months of pacemaker implantation.
Postpericardiotomy syndrome after cardiac surgery
Current diagnostic criteria of PPS should be reconsidered, and the analyses should be divided into subgroups according to the severity of the syndrome to achieve more clinically applicable and meaningful results in the future studies.

Although typically rather benign, PCIS may result in significant morbidity and potential mortality due to arrhythmias, noncardiac pulmonary edema, and cardiac tamponade, therefore, its early detection is of clinical importance.

Cardiac pacing is a proven therapy of cardiac conduction disturbances and an effective treatment modality in many cardiac arrhythmias. Implantable cardiac defibrillators (ICDs) are particularly
Incidence and Predictors of Pericardial Effusion After Permanent Heart Rhythm Device Implantation
PE is frequently seen after HRD implantation, but rarely requires any therapy, and female gender and antiplatelet therapy are risk factors, whereas previous cardiac surgery was a protective factor.
Incidence and predictors of pericardial effusion after permanent heart rhythm device implantation: prospective evaluation of 968 consecutive patients.
Female gender and antiplatelet therapy are risk factors, whereas previous cardiac surgery was a protective factor in any PE and cardiac tamponade.
