Abstract

The beating of a pulmonary vein during cardiac catheterization is a rare phenomenon caused by the heart beating through the pericardial effusion when a cardiac tamponade occurs. This “beating pulmonary vein” sign is useful for early detection of a tamponade before circulatory collapse occurs.
