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.
