What Happens When The Pericardium Of The Heart Is Removed
By not interfering: A healthy pericardium is a very flexible, thin tissue that is "just there." it generally serves little purpose, other than to allow the chambers of the heart to expand outwards in a normal fashion, without resistance, as they fill with blood. If pericardium becomes inflamed, thickened or hardened, the heart loses this outward mobility, and pressure rises greatly as the heart tries to fill.See 1 more doctor answer
Many: The pericardium isolates the heart from surrounding organs, prevents the heart from over expanding when blood volume increases, limits heart motion, and keeps a small amount of fluid around the heart that severs as a lubricant which reduces friction with surrounding tissue as the heart beats.See 1 more doctor answer

I have block in heart at multiple place. My Dr suggested the blocks can't be removed under surgery. What are other possible ways. I have done angiogra?
Blockages: That is true, surgery does not remove the blockages that are there, it provides a bypass route around the blockages, but if there are too many, or the artery is too small it can't be bypassed.
Acardia: The aztecs had a lot of experience with it. Brain death probably is irreversible a minute after removal but it isn't likely exact.
Heart rhythm problem: This could be a problem in your heart's electrical system or a side effect of medications. You need to see a doctor.See 1 more doctor answer
