Pericarditis Treatments and Diagnosis

with Allan Klein, MD

Description:

The pericardium is a thin, two-layered, fluid-filled sac that covers the outer surface of the heart. It shields the heart from infection or malignancy and contains the heart in the chest wall. It also prevents the heart from over-expanding when blood volume increases, which keeps the heart functioning efficiently. Take this opportunity to have your questions on Pericarditis answered by Director of the Center for the Diagnosis and Treatment of Pericardial Diseases Allan Klein, MD.
