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.

My husband was in a serious car accident and the doctor said he has a "hemopericardium." what is that?
Mum died suddenly due to hemopericardium. She had stopped taking blood pressure tablets. Was this the 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. ...Read more
