INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVES: Tako-tsubo syndrome is a potentially serious disease during the acute phase. It mimics myocardial infarction, but with no potentially causative coronary lesions. The aim of this study was to analyze the clinical course and outcome of patients with tako-tsubo syndrome by sex. METHODS: We analyzed the characteristics of patients included in the RETAKO registry from 2003 to 2015, a multicenter registry with participation of 32 Spanish hospitals...

Takotsubo cardiomyopathy (TTC) is characterized by transient systolic ventricular dysfunction. It is supposed to be caused by a cathecolaminergic wave which leads to myocardial stunning through a massive action on beta2-adrenoreceptor. Moreover, beta2-receptor hyperactivity negatively influences endothelial function. It can be detected by brachial flow mediated dilation (b-FMD) which assesses endothelium regulated vasomotility. The study aim is to analyze the b-FMD variability during hospitalization in 50 patients admitted with TTC...

Stress cardiomyopathy or Tako Tsubo cardiomyopathy is a cardiac pathology evoking acute coronary syndrome characterized by electrocardiographic signs, cardiac enzyme elevation and no obstructive coronary lesions. It generally affects postmenopausal women and it usually occurs after periods of intense stress. Disease onset is widely variable, ranging from anginal pain (most common) to cardiogenic shock. Exact pathophysiological mechanism continues to be debated. Various hypotheses have been posited. Abrupt elevation of adrenaline levels appears to be the most credible...

INTRODUCTION: Tako-tsubo syndrome, or "left ventricular transitory apical balloon syndrome", is an acute coronary syndrome with normal coronary arteries. OBSERVATION: We report the case of a 50-year-old patient operated for a post-tuberculous destroyed lung, for which she had a left pneumonectomy. Six months later, she presented with chest pain complicated by cardiorespiratory arrest. The Tako-tsubo syndrome was retained after eliminating the other causes. CONCLUSION: The diagnosis of Tako-tsubo syndrome should be considered before the sudden occurrence of an acute coronary syndrome in the aftermath of stress or emotional shock...

AIM: To define the role of cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) by analyzing a particular group of patients with suspected acute coronary syndrome (ACS) and normal coronary angiogram. METHODS: From January 2009 to December 2015, we examined 220 patients with clinical suspicion of ACS, Troponin elevation [the threshold used to define a positive Troponin T test (TnT) was 0.1 ng/mL] and no significant coronary disease at angiography (the patients were considered to have significant angiographic disease only a 50% stenosis was detected in any of their coronary arteries)...

In clinical practice, dynamic left ventricular outflow tract obstruction (LVOTO) in the setting of tako-tsubo cardiomyopathy (TTC) has been regarded as an early-onset complication typically emerging in accordance with wall motion abnormalities. However, dynamic LVOTO has, very rarely, been reported as a late-onset phenomenon in the setting of TTC as well (arising in the late stage or after recovery). Accordingly, the present paper aims to highlight clinical relevance and potential implications of late-onset LVOTO in the setting of TTC...

BACKGROUND: Late gadolinium enhancement (LGE) on cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (CMR) has been recommended to distinguish Tako-tsubo cardiomyopathy (TTC) from either acute myocardial infarction or myocarditis. METHOD: 44 consecutive patients with confirmed Mayo Clinic criteria for TTC underwent CMR imaging at 1.5 Tesla during the acute phase. 10 patients who had CMRI to exclude scar related ventricular tachycardia, and had negative studies, were used as negative controls...

The Szeged cardiomyopathy and ion channel diseases registry aims to establish a representative disease-specific registry based on the recruitment of patients with different cardiomyopathies and ion channel diseases followed at the Cardiology Center, University of Szeged. The registry collects patient data on the main forms of primary cardiomyopathies (hypertrophic, dilated, restrictive, arrhythmogenic right ventricular, left ventricular non-compact, tako-tsubo cardiomyopathy) and ion channel diseases (long QT syndrome, short QT syndrome, Brugada syndrome, catecholaminergic polymorphic ventricular tachycardia)...

: We report the case of early recurrence of Tako-Tsubo cardiomyopathy in an elderly woman with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis triggered by different stressors. A first episode with typical apical ballooning was anticipated by an emotional stress; a second, characterized by systolic anterior motion of the mitral valve associated with mitral regurgitation and severe intra-ventricular gradient, was precipitated by surgical stress and hypovolemia. We therefore hypothesize both a possible link between amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and Tako-Tsubo cardiomyopathy, and between different stressors and different Tako-Tsubo patterns...

: We report a case of paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia complicating Tako-Tsubo cardiomyopathy. We hypothesize that increased adrenergic tone supposedly underlying transient apical ballooning syndrome may facilitate the onset of paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardias in predisposed patients.

Background - Acute coronary syndrome with high level of troponin is a common pattern for emergency consultation. In 10% of cases, coronary angiography concluded that there were no significant coronary lesions. The contribution of cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in the etiological investigation is increasing in these conditions. Aim - We analyzed the diagnostic value of cardiac MRI in case of acute coronary syndromes with elevated troponin and normal coronary angiography. Methods - It's a retrospective analytical study including 31 patients presenting with acute coronary syndrome with positive troponins and normal coronary angiography...

The cardiac impact of psychological stress historically and socially understood as boundary experiences of human life has long since become an icon. From the aching heart to the sudden death provoked by awe, horror, grief, anger, and humiliation on one side and extreme enchantment, enthusiasm, and excitement on the other, the broken heart has become a globally recognized and powerful metaphor present from folklore to popular culture to high literature and back to everyday communication. In medicine, the "broken heart syndrome" is described as a relatively new nosological entity that has been used synonymously with the term tako-tsubo or stress cardiomyopathy...

The pathogenesis of tako-tsubo syndrome remains, nowadays, unclear: it is likely that the relevance of the different proposed mechanisms differs among specific clinical contexts. In this paper, we describe the case of a 61-year-old woman admitted to the intensive cardiac care unit for pre-syncope and persistent hypotension. Clinical and echocardiographic data were suggestive of tako-tsubo syndrome with severe dynamic left ventricular outflow tract (LVOT) obstruction and severe mitral regurgitation. Coronary angiography was normal...

Stress cardiomyopathy (SC) is characterized by transient left ventricular (LV) wall motion abnormalities typically involving the apex with preserved basal contractility, chest discomfort, ST-T ischemic changes and elevated cardiac markers with normal or non-flow limiting coronary artery lesions. It represents an important differential diagnosis of Acute Coronary Syndromes caused by atherosclerotic vessel occlusion; most commonly, Tako-tsubo occurs in postmenopausal women after physical or emotional stress. While the exact mechanism of SC remains controversial, various hypotheses have been suggested concerning the vascular, central nervous and endocrine system participation where catecholamines, particularly epinephrine, seem to play a major role...

Acute cardiac dysfunctions associated to neuroblastoma have rarely been reported. Cases already described are mainly related to high blood pressure, and rarely to an "acute catecholamine cardiomyopathy" more frequently found in adults with pheochromocytoma or secreting paraganglioma. We here report a case of an 8-month-old infant with severe acute cardiac failure with dilated cardiomyopathy and moderate ischemic myocardial signs, revealing a favorable histoprognosis neuroblastoma. After specific treatment, evolution was favorable, and cardiac function completely recovered...
