Figure 19-22: Diffuse moderate pericardial effusion (pulmonary neoplasia) from different views (there is initial early systolic RA collapse and initial diastolic collapse of the free RV wall).
Figure 23. Pleural and pericardial partially organized effusion as seen from the posterior left hemi-thorax.
Figures 23-24: Severe loculated pericardial effusion, prevalently postero-lateral to the LV. Normal function of the aortic, mitral and tricuspid mechanical valve prosthesis (recent re-intervention for severe tricuspid stenosis and regurgitation in previous aortic and mitral valve replacement). The effusion was subsequently drained with pericardiocentesis.
Figure 25. Moderate to severe loculated pericardial effusion, latero-apical to the LV.
