Objective: To determine the frequency of pericardial effusion in cases of Myocardial Infarction. Methodology: This was a cross sectional study that was carried out at Lahore General Hospital, Lahore during November 2017 to May 2018. The cases of acute myocardial infarction (MI) of both male and female gender with age more than 30 years were selected by non-probability consecutive sampling. The diagnosis of MI was made on the basis of chest pain of 5 or more on visual analogue scale and certain ECG changes i.e. ST segment elevation, depression or T wave inversion and positive trop T test. Then these cases underwent echo-cardiography and pericardial effusion was noted irrespective of its amount. Results: In this the mean age of the 100 participants of Acute MI was 54.57±9.78 years. There were 58% of cases male and 71% had acute Anterior walk MI. Pericardial effusion was seen in 23 (23%) out of 100 cases. There was no significant difference in terms of gender and age groups with p values of 0.81 and 0.89. Pericardial effusion was significantly high in AWMI where it was observed in 20 (28.17%) cases as compared to 3 10.34%) cases with IWMI with p value= 0.001. Conclusion; Pericardial effusion is seen in every 4th case suffering from acute MI and acute AWMI has shown significant association with this.
