Abstract

A 53 year old man presented with symptomatic severe pulmonary valve regurgitation. He underwent a diagnostic catheterization. A heavily calcified pericardium and the pressure tracings illustrate typical features of constrictive pericarditis physiology. This condition is important to recognize given the progressive nature and poor prognosis when left untreated.
