Midventricular ballooning syndrome, an atypical presentation of takotsubo cardiomyopathy (TCM), presents with transient wall motion abnormalities of the midsegment of the left ventricle with apical sparing. In midventricular TCM, apical contractility is unaffected or may be hyperkinetic in contrast to the typical form of TCM. We report a case of atypical TCM, wherein the patient presented with chest pain following choking and coughing spells due to a postnasal drip.

The Takotsubo cardiomyopathy is often considered autochthonous to the heart, although the primary problem may be not in the heart muscle itself. Instead, similar to several Takotsubo-like cardiac pathologies seen in acute neurological diseases, it may reflect the capacity of the nervous system to injure the heart. Persuasive evidence exists that shocking emotional stress promotes direct heart injuries. Moreover, clinical and laboratory research shows that cardiac structural damage can occur in the presence of a normal heart, especially in the context of seizures, stroke, and traumatic brain injury or under conditions of psychological stress...

BACKGROUND: Takotsubo cardiomyopathy (TTC) is a stress-related transient cardiomyopathy. Life threatening arrhythmias (LTA) can occur and worsen prognosis. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to assess the incidence and outcome of LTA in TTC, its predictive factors and clinical implications. METHODS: We studied 214 consecutive cases of TTC over 8 years. The study cohort was divided into two groups - those with LTA (LTA-group) and those without (non-LTA-group)...

Basal septal hypertrophy is a rare and unique anatomical finding associated with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM). It is also described as a sigmoid hypertrophy and is linked with aging and chronic hypertension. Takotsubo cardiomyopathy is a transient cardiomyopathy that occurs during periods of high physical or emotional stress. Its occurrence with HCM is relatively common; however, this presentation occurs more often with the classic asymmetrical septal hypertrophy or the apical variant. This case demonstrates its coexistence with isolated sigmoid hypertrophy in an elderly, hypertensive female with severe ischemic bowel disease...

Electrocardiographic Decision Support - Myocardial Ischaemia (EDS-MI) is a graphical decision support for detection and localization of acute transmural ischaemia. A recent study indicated that EDS-MI performs well for detection of acute transmural ischaemia. However, its performance has not been tested in patients with non-ischaemic ST-deviation. We aimed to optimize the diagnostic accuracy of EDS-MI in patients with verified acute coronary occlusion as well as patients with non-ischaemic ST deviation and compare its performance with STEMI criteria...

BACKGROUND: Coronary artery fistula, first described by Krause in 1865, is an abnormal communication between the coronary artery and one of the four chambers of the heart or one of the great vessels. The communications are often congenital but may also be acquired from trauma or invasive cardiovascular procedures. Half of the cases present with angina pectoris whereas the remaining half are incidentally detected on echocardiogram or angiogram performed for an unrelated reason. Takotsubo cardiomyopathy or stress-induced cardiomyopathy is characterized by transient left ventricular dysfunction with minimal elevation of cardiac biomarkers in the absence of underlying coronary artery disease...

BACKGROUND: Premature myocardial infarction (MI) is an increasingly prevalent cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. A subset of patients, predominantly young women, present with MI with no obstructive coronary artery disease (MINOCA), a nomenclature gaining recognition. However, few data exist on presentation and prognosis according to the severity of coronary artery disease (CAD). METHODS: We studied patients with premature (younger than 55 years of age) acute MI enrolled in a large cohort in 24 centres across Canada...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: This review paper aims to provide a complete and updated overview on the clinical and pathophysiological aspects of Takotsubo syndrome (TTS), including prognosis, therapy, and the association with cerebrovascular conditions. RECENT FINDINGS: TTS is an increasingly recognized non-ischemic cardiomyopathy characterized by sudden, temporary weakening of the myocardium, of which the pathogenesis is unknown. Although pathogenesis of TTS remains unclear, a complex interaction between catecholamine-mediated stimulation, myocardial stunning, and subsequent stress-related myocardial dysfunction seems to be the main pathophysiological mechanism...

BACKGROUND: Recent hypotheses have suggested the pathophysiological role of catecholamines in the evolution of the Takotsubo syndrome (TTS). The extent of cardiac and circulatory compromise dictates the use of some form of supportive therapy. This study was designed to investigate the clinical outcomes associated with catecholamine use in TTS patients. METHODS: Our institutional database constituted a collective of 114 patients diagnosed with TTS between 2003 and 2015...

BACKGROUND: Takotsubo cardiomyopathy (TC), also known as stress-induced cardiomyopathy, has been increasingly described in relation to psychiatric illness. METHODS: We performed a literature review to identify the key findings related to psychiatric illness in TC that may be relevant to the practice of mental health and other health care providers. RESULTS: The association of psychiatric illness with TC in addition to the spectrum of psychiatric illness found in TC, the role of exacerbation or treatment of psychiatric illness in triggering TC, different modes of presentation, prognostic implications, and long-term management of psychiatric illness in TC are discussed...

Takotsubo cardiomyopathy (TTC) is newly-described secondary cardiomyopathy characterized by transient left ventricular (LV) dysfunction, which is increasingly recognized in the field of cardiology. TTC occurs in approximately 2% of the patients with acute coronary syndrome. Its onset is rare; however, its specific features play a crucial role in diagnosing the chest pain in clinical practice. TTC has generally favorable outcome with rapid recovery of LV function; however, an increasing evidence suggests that it should be regarded as a more serious acute cardiac disorder with a variety of complications...

BACKGROUND: Takotsubo cardiomyopathy (TCM), also known as "broken heart syndrome", is a type of heart failure characterized by transient ventricular dysfunction in the absence of obstructive coronary lesions. Although associated with increased levels of catecholamines, pathophysiological mechanisms are unknown. Relapses and family heritability indicate a genetic predisposition. Several small studies have investigated associations between three different loci; the β1-adrenic receptor (ADRB1), G-protein-coupled receptor kinase 5 (GRK5), Bcl-associated athanogene 3 (BAG3) and TCM but no consensus has been reached...

Takotsubo cardiomyopathy is described as a transient reversible cardiomyopathy which typically occurs in older women after emotional or physical stress. This cardiomyopathy is also recognized as a "syndrome" because it develops in conjunction with various diseases. Since the clinical presentation of takotsubo syndrome (TTS) is similar to acute coronary syndrome (ACS), TTS should be distinguished from ischemic heart disease. Although the pathophysiology of TTS has not well been established, a number of its specific features have been suggested...

The associations between stress-induced takotsubo cardiomyopathy (TC) and cancer or its therapy have been studied with increasing interest in recent years. Different mechanisms of TC development in neoplastic disease are suggested, including a decreased threshold for stress stimuli or aggravated heart adrenoreceptors sensitivity. The action of cytokines and reactive oxygen species on the myocardium, on the epicardial arteries as well as on the coronary microcirculation is also taken into consideration. The authors describe a case of a 30-year-old male with lung cancer, after immunotherapy with checkpoint inhibitors followed by two lines of chemotherapy and after pericardial and pleural drainage...

Takotsubo cardiomyopathy (TCM) is a well-known complication of many conditions associated with emotional or physical stress. Abnormal catecholamine release has been hypothesized to be the main cause of TCM. Myocardial infarction (MI) is associated with release of large amounts of catecholamines. We present here two cases in which patients simultaneously suffered from acute MI and TCM. In these elderly women without prior history of severe somatic diseases we have not revealed any external stressing factor responsible for the initiation of the disease...

We report a case of a 47-year-old Caucasian woman with medical history of hypertension and hypokalemia, who presented to Emergency Room with symptoms resembling acute coronary syndrome ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction. Coronary angiogram revealed clear coronary arteries and left ventriculogram confirmed the diagnosis of Takotsubo cardiomyopathy. She was treated conservatively with good clinical outcome. Subsequent testing revealed underlying primary aldosteronism.
