    18/04/2015 Catheter-induced perforation during LV angiography with dye extravasation into the pericardial space

    23/04/2015 perforation of the left ventricle. induced by the catheter and dye injected into the pericardial space. Immediately I would ask for the pericardial puncture kit.

    28/04/2015 I think this is a wire-induced perforation of the apex that followed by partial positioning of the catheter tip in the pericardial space. Contrast injection opacified the pericardium through the tip and the body of the LV through the side holes. I would leave the catheter in place to avoid bleeding augmentation, use pericardiocentesis if hemodynamics became unstable and send the patient immediately to the OR.
