Cardiac hydatidosis. Review of recent literature and report of 15 cases



Cardiac hydatidosis. Review of recent literature and report of 15 cases



Annales de Chirurgie 44(8): 603-610



In the context of a personal series of fifteen cases of hydatid cyst of the heart, the authors present a computerized review of the last one hundred cases published in the literature. The modern features of the disease are discussed together with its severity (mortality of 23.47% in 98 recent cases). Despite the considerable contribution of ultrasonography, computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging, a certain number of pejorative criteria appear to persist:delayed diagnosis, diagnostic error, acute pulmonary oedema and incomplete surgical cure.
