Abstract

The authors report a case in which computed tomography (CT) was used to guide percutaneous needle aspiration of postoperative pericardial and paracardiac fluid collection. This application of CT has particular importance in postsurgical cardiac patients because of the loculated nature and occasional atypical location of fluid collections.
