Hemopericardium?: In an open "surgical " repair central lines may be placed and the wires used to put them in may cause trouble like that. In many many repairs I have never heard of such an occurrence though.

What is hemopericardium cause?

Hemopericardium: Blood in the pericardial sack around the heart can be due to bleeding from one of the arteries on the heart, bleeding from the aorta or aortic aneurysm, cardiac perforation after a procedure or a cardiac wall rupture. The severity depends upon the cause and treatment ranges from observation to open heart surgery. All of these should be followed by a cardiologist and a surgeon.

Mum died suddenly due to hemopericardium. She had stopped taking blood pressure tablets. Was this the cause?

Mum died suddenly due to hemopericardium. She had stopped taking blood pressure tablets. Was this the cause?

No: Hemopericardium is caused by bleeding into the sac that encases the heart. High blood pressure is not a cause. Trauma, malignancy, infection, and diseases of deficient platelets or clotting factors are the causes. Sorry about your mum. Hope this information gives you some closure or reassurance.

My wife died 3 days ago from hemopericardium. She died instantly would there have been some warning in the weeks prior that something was wrong.?

My wife died 3 days ago from hemopericardium. She died instantly would there have been some warning in the weeks prior that something was wrong.?

I'm so sorry to hear: The heart is enclosed in a sack called pericardium containing a small amount of fluid at all time. Hemopericardium means blood instead of fluid and if this happens from a rupturing of a vessel/aorta near the heart, it can impede the heart rapidly. Some people have this following a heart attack, but usually gives some symptoms. Rarely infection can also do this. Sorry for your loss. Please see doc.

What causes a wound to weep?

Part of healing: When there is injury to our skin, inflammation occurs which means the area becomes red, warm, tender and with swelling. The swelling occurs under the skin layers and then can leak out of an open wound. The fluid contains water, protein, electrolytes and cells that give it color. This is a natural process and aids in healing. As it heals, the drainage will decrease. Keep it covered.
