Surgery ­for con­stric­tive per­i­car­ditis ­has ­become a ­rare ­entity ­now. Various non-cardiac surgical meas­ures ­are sometimes ­tried to ­remove ­the cal­cif­ic ­plaques on ­the sur­face with­out dam­ag­ing ­the under­ly­ing car­diac struc­tures. We ­report a ­case of ­severe cal­cif­ic per­i­car­ditis ­in ­which ­the Midas Rex neu­ro­sur­gi­cal ­drill ­was suc­cess­ful­ly ­used to facil­i­tate per­i­car­diec­to­my. Such a ­case ­has ­not ­been pre­vi­ous­ly report­ed in ­the lit­er­a­ture.
