From the results, it was felt that transvenous right atriography is a reliable confirmatory investigation of pericardial effusion. The procedure is simple and can be carried out in any hospital.Spurious positive results may arise from faulty technique or due to marked pericardial thickening whilst false negatives may be encountered with viscid, inspissated or loculated pericardial effusion.
