Description

Mortality relating to heart disease has continued to decrease over the past several years, making the management of patient morbidity increasingly important. This trend coincides with an increased emphasis on managing patients with pericarditis, a disease defined as inflammation of the pericardial sac and that is often characterized by significant morbidity. Most patients with acute pericarditis have a benign course and a good prognosis. However, others will develop complicated pericarditis, which is characterized by incessant, recurrent, chronic, or constrictive disease. Many of these patients will experience severe debilitation because of this chronic disease.

Objectives

Objective 1: Discuss how to identify patients at risk for complicated disease after acute pericarditis.
Upon completion of the educational activity, participants should be able to discuss how to identify patients at risk for complicated disease after acute pericarditis.
Objective 2: Review the use of auto-inflammatory and other therapies in the treatment of pericarditis.
Upon completion of the educational activity, participants should be able to review the use of auto-inflammatory and other therapies in the treatment of pericarditis.
