    Abstract

    A patient with constrictive pericarditis early after coronary bypass surgery is presented. At reoperation a dense inflammatory process was encountered on the epicardial surface of the heart with minimal pericardial thickening. Crosshatching of the epicardial scar tissue produced an immediate and durable clinical response.
