Intrapericardial hematomas are mostly found in association with traumas, cardiac surgical operations, and coronary interventions. In the case of open-heart surgeries, intrapericardial hematomas usually resolve without complications. However, in rare cases, they could be chronic or mimic the features of other lesions.
