Hello and Welcome to HealingWell.  I have read of children as young as 16 having a pericardiectomy.  I do not know what the youngest age has been.
If you are having doubts re this procedure please do seek a second opinion for your daughter.  I understand your concerns.
Again a warm welcome to HealingWell.
