Malvika, I'm sorry to hear of this with Prince. Unfortunately, I have no experience with pericardectomy. I only know that a subtotal pericardectomy is the preferred procedure if more than two repeat pericardiocentesis procedures have been required. Complications of a subtotal pericardectomy include pleural effusion, pleural thickening, and compartmentalization of lung lobes. I'll opt out so an expert with more experience than I concerning pericardectomy can enter this conversation. My best to Prince.
