Abstract

Experimental studies have confirmed the clinical impression that large bilateral pleural effusions are able to raise the pressure in an otherwise hemodynamically insignificant pericardial effusion to a level sufficient to produce right ventricular diastolic collapse (RVDC). The hemodynamic consequences of this syndrome are not as severe as when the intrapericardial pressure is raised to the same level by excess intrapericardial fluid in the absence of pleural effusions. RVDC caused byexcess pleural fluid with a minor pericardial effusion is a false positive indication for pericardial fluid drainage. Thoracentesis is moreappropriate.
