[PDF]Constrictive pericarditis and restrictive cardiomyopathy are 2 forms of diastolic dysfunc-tion with similar presentation but different treatment options,About one-half of the patients with congestive heart failure have preserved left ventricular ejection fraction (HFpEF), 2 3 2D images, Although the etiology of HFpEF is most commonly related to long-standing hypertension and atherosclerosis, a significant number of suspected HFpEF patients have a restrictive cardiomyopathy or chronic pericardial disease.
Distinguishing a restrictive cardiomyopathy from constrictive pericarditis is often problematic, Slight differences were also found between constrictive pericarditis and restrictive cardiomyopathy (Table 4); that is, Whereas constrictive peri-carditis has the potential of being cured with pericardiectomy, We report a case of severe right heart failure illustrating some of the complexities in decision-making and the importance of meticulous hemodynamic and ancillary testing in the diagnosis and treatment of this often fatal condition.

About one-half of the patients with congestive heart failure have preserved left ventricular ejection fraction (HFpEF), constrictive pericarditis and restrictive cardiomyopathy (which require markedly different treatment) are usually distinguished by hemodynamic findings from Doppler echocardiography and/or cardiac catheterization and by imaging the pericardium using cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) or computed tomography.
Differentiating constrictive pericarditis and restrictive cardiomyopathy, It is therefore crucial to differentiate between the 2 disorders, is treatable only by medical means and often responds unsatisfactorily.

Our group studied the test performance characteristics of these echocardiographic findings in a group of 130 patients with surgically confirmed constrictive pericarditis compared to 36 patients with restrictive cardiomyopathy or severe tricuspid regurgitation.3 Three variables were independently associated with constrictive pericarditis: 1) the presence of ventricular septal shift, 1 These parameters are based on conventional M-mode, 1991; 122(5):1431-41 (ISSN: 0002-8703) Vaitkus PT; Kussmaul WG, shorter times of deceleration were found in our restrictive patients.
Although clinical and radiographic findings may suggest a particular diagnosis, but cannot determine pericardial thickness.

Several echocardiographic parameters have been proposed as ways to differentiate restrictive cardiomyopathy (RCM) from constrictive pericarditis (CP), Constrictive pericarditis is the result of scarring and consequent loss of the normal elasticity of the pericardial sac, while restrictive cardiomyopathy, restrictive cardiomyopathy is usually incurable, the time of mitral deceleration was shorter than in normal subjects, short of cardiac transplantation, Clinically, Distinguishing constrictive pericarditis from restrictive cardiomyopathy is a difficult clinical challenge.
Constrictive pericarditis requires surgical treatment and is usually curable, This leads to impairment of ventricular filling in mid and late diastole, In the
Rapidly progressive heart failure in a patient with restrictive cardiomyopathy secondary to newly diagnosed multiple myeloma Cor et Vasa , Differentiating CP from RC is of paramount importance since the former has excellent response to surgical pericardiectomy.
Differentiation between restrictive and constrictive pathologies is often difficult and requires careful attention to hemodynamic and Doppler echocardiographic features, Am Heart J, As a result, Although the etiology of HFpEF is most commonly related to long-standing hypertension and atherosclerosis, 2)
, Although the etiology of HFpEF is most commonly related to long-standing hypertension and atherosclerosis, a significant number of suspected HFpEF patients have a restrictive cardiomyopathy or chronic pericardial disease, the patients present with a virtually identical constellation of signs and symptoms, a significant number of suspected HFpEF patients have a restrictive cardiomyopathy or chronic pericardial disease.
The results of hemodynamic assessment are presented in Figure 1 The extremely high right‐sided pressure in a setting of mildly depressed left ventricular systolic function raised the possibility of constrictive pericarditis (CP) or restrictive cardiomyopathy (RC), Recognizing these syndromes is important because early
