About this study
Until now, diagnosis of constriction was based on pressure changes of ventricle by conventional pressure-wide hemodynamic evaluation but not on ventricular volume change. This study will provide answers to persisting questions about volume changes during respiration in patients with constrictive pericarditis by directly measuring both right and left ventricular volume.
Participant eligibility includes age, gender, type and stage of disease, and previous treatments or health concerns. Guidelines differ from study to study, and identify who can or cannot participate. If you need assistance understanding the eligibility criteria, please contact the study team.
