Referring to the pericardium
, the sac of fibrous tissue that surrounds the heart.
The inner surface of the pericardium is lined by a layer of flat cells (mesothelial cells). The pericardial sac normally contains a small amount of fluid which acts as a lubricant to allow normal heart movement within the chest.
A pericardial effusion refers to the presence of too much pericardial fluid, a serous fluid of a pale yellow color, within the pericardium.
The procedure of removing fluid from the pericardium by puncturing its wall and aspiration.
The procedure of removing adhesions between the two layers of the pericardium or between the pericardium and the surrounding structures.
Inflammation of both the pericardium and adjoining structures in the mediastinum.
A reference to or involving pericardium and pleura.
A suturing of the pericardium.
A surgical incision of the pericardium.
Referring to or characterized by pericarditis.
Inflammation of the lining around the heart (the pericardium) causing chest pain and accumulation of fluid around the heart (pericardial effusion).
The conical sac of fibrous tissue that surrounds the heart and the roots of the great blood vessels.
The pericardium's outer coat (the parietal pericardium) is tough and thickened, loosely cloaks the heart, and is attached to the central part of the diaphragm and the back of the breastbone. Its inner coat (the visceral pericardium or epicardium) is double, with one layer closely adherent to the heart and the other lining the inner surface of the outer coat.
The intervening space between these layers is filled with pericardial fluid. This small amount of fluid acts as a lubricant to allow normal heart movement within the chest.
A record of the heart sounds made by means of a phonocardiograph (an instrument, utilizing microphones, amplifiers, and filters, for graphically recording the heart sounds, which are displayed on an oscilloscope or analog tracing).
An instrument, utilizing microphones, amplifiers, and filters, for graphically recording heart sounds and murmurs, that are displayed on an oscilloscope or analog tracing.
1. Recording of the heart sounds with a phonocardiograph.
2. The science of interpreting phonocardiograms.
The use of synchronous cardiac sounds and cinefluorography (motion-picture recording of fluroscopic images) to study heart form, motion, and function.
An instrument for the simultaneous visualization of a phonocardiogram and an electrocardiogram.
