During this time the patient should be monitored for acute complications such as tension pneumopericardium
and tension pneumothorax.

3) There are few reports of pneumopericardium
linked to pericardic drainage.
The patient was uneventfully discharged on the 12th day as a control chest CT-scan showed complete resolution of the pneumopericardium
and the bilateral pneumothorax (Fig.
