Percutaneous long lines, routinely used in preterm infants, can be associated with several cardiac complications such as pericardial effusion and consequent cardiac tamponade. We report three patients with pericardial effusion highlighting the importance of cardiac ultrasound monitoring to both early diagnosis and treatment.

Abstract

Percutaneous long lines, routinely used in preterm infants, can be associated with several cardiac complications such as pericardial effusion and consequent cardiac tamponade. We report three patients with pericardial effusion highlighting the importance of cardiac ultrasound monitoring to both early diagnosis and treatment.
