Figure 3 (A-C): Pericardial gossypiboma in a 36-year-old male patient who had undergone aortic valve replacement operation 18 months earlier. (A, B) An enhanced chest CT examination demonstrates well-defined right-sided intrapericardial mass lesion near the aortic valve which contains infolded linear dense sponge markers (arrows) and opens to the subxiphoid region with a fistula tract (asteriks). (C) The patient underwent a second operation, and a surgical gauze sponge was removed. VC, vena cava superior; Ao, aorta
