Video 1: Transthoracic echocardiography; 4 chamber view: it displays a moderate (2 cm) diffuse pericardial effusion, more pronounced on the left side due to partial adhesions. Also ventricular septal bounce due to a paradoxical interventricular septum shift prompted by respiration phases is displayed.



Video 2: CMR in the 4 chamber orientation showing mild residual pericardial effusion (moderate bright space between pericardial layers), diffuse thickening of pericardial leaflets all around the heart and septal bounce.
