Abstract

Two patients developed cardiac tamponade from delayed hemorrhage into the pericardial sac following open heart surgery. The initial clinical manifestations of tamponade included nausea and dramatic elevations of serum aminotransferases, simulating acute hepatitis. To our knowledge, this presentation of cardiac tamponade has not been previously reported.
