Background and aim: Takotsubo cardiomyopathy (TC) is an important differential diagnosis of coronary artery disease (CAD), mimicking acute coronary syndrome in clinical symptoms, biomarker profiles and ST-elevation in ECG. Absence of occlusive coronary disease is an essential criterion distinguishing both diseases. The aim of the study was to explore the influence of co-existing incidental CAD on poorer clinical outcomes and all-cause mortality in TC. Design, methods and results: Our mono-centric study cohort constituted 114 consecutive patients diagnosed with TC between 2003 and 2015...

BACKGROUND: Takotsubo Cardiomyopathy (TTC) is a transient disorder of ventricular wall dysfunction, mostly induced by physical or emotional stress. TTC may be associated with adverse cardiac events. The association of cancer and its clinical impact in TTC patients has not been described yet. METHODS: In 114 consecutive patients presenting with TTC between January 2003 and September 2015, we studied the frequency of cancer diagnosis, and compared the clinical course and the occurrence of a clinical endpoint of cancer and non-cancer patients during a follow up of 4...

Gender medicine is concerned with the question of why diseases are expressed differently in the genders. It takes differences between men and women into account, which are often neglected by traditional medicine. Sex differences can also be found in cardiovascular diseases; therefore, risk factors for cardiovascular diseases have a different significance depending on the sex. Diabetic diseases tend to promote the occurrence of coronary heart disease (CHD) more strongly in women than in men. Myocardial infarctions affect women 10 years later than men and young women are often treated too late, possibly because myocardial infarction is consider to be a "male disease"...

Acute stress can trigger cardiovascular events and disease. The earthquake is an "ideal" natural experiment for acute and chronic stress, with impact mainly on the cardiovascular system. On May 20th and 29th, 2012, two earthquakes of magnitude 5.9° to 6.4° on the Richter scale, hit the province of Modena and Reggio Emilia, an area of the north-center of Italy never considered at seismic risk. The purpose of our study was to assess whether there were gender-specific differences in stress-induced incidence of cardiovascular events and age of patients who arrived at the Emergency Departments (ED) of the three main teaching hospitals of the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia...

BACKGROUND: Matrix metalloproteinase 8 (MMP-8) is the most potent type-I collagen protease. Such collagen mainly constitutes the transient fibrosis in takotsubo cardiomyopathy (TTC) endomyocardial biopsies. High MMP-8 and tissue-inhibitor of matrix metalloproteinase-1 (TIMP-1) levels are implicated in acute coronary syndrome (ACS). We compared MMP-8 and TIMP-1 levels in consecutive TTC and ACS patients, and their association to TTC severity. METHODS AND RESULTS: In 45 acute serum samples of TTC, 2072 ACS and 1000 controls, TIMP-1 differed between ACS 146...

BACKGROUND: Focused cardiac ultrasound (FoCUS) can be extremely helpful in identifying unexpected diagnoses that can significantly alter treatment options. The diagnosis of Takotsubo cardiomyopathy (TCM) may be difficult to identify. CASE REPORT: We describe a 47-year-old woman who presented to the emergency department (ED) with atypical features of TCM. Her clinical features included being a premenopausal woman with mild chest pain with a lack of identifiable emotional or physical stressors or significant electrocardiographic changes...

BACKGROUND: Diagnosing stress cardiomyopathy (SCMP) apart from acute coronary syndrome (ACS) is challenging since coronary evaluation is not always feasible in real-world clinical practice. We explored the current practice pattern of coronary evaluation in patients suspected to have SCMP and divulged the distinguishable features of SCMP from ACS. METHODS AND RESULTS: From 2010 to 2015, only 219 out of 691 (32%) hospitalized patients suspected to have SCMP have received coronary evaluation in two tertiary hospitals...

BACKGROUND: We aimed to investigate left ventricular (LV) functional recovery in Takotsubo cardiomyopathy (TC) using three-dimensional (3D) speckle tracking echocardiography. METHODS: Twenty-one patients with TC who underwent routine and 3D echocardiography as well as electrocardiography were enrolled. 3D images were analyzed to measure 3D radial strain and area tracking (area change of each LV segment). Postsystolic shortening (PSS) or thickening (PST) was defined as a further shortening or thickening occurred after the end-systole...

BACKGROUND: Takotsubo cardiomyopathy (TC) is a myopathy triggered by severe stressful events. However, little is known about the determinants of in-hospital outcomes. We prospectively determined the effect of different triggers on the prognosis of TC. METHODS AND RESULTS: We enrolled patients who were admitted for suspected acute coronary syndrome (ACS) from January 2008 to December 2015. TC was diagnosed according to the Mayo Clinic diagnosis criteria. The outcome was in-hospital death...

Takotsubo cardiomyopathy (TCM) is a unique type of cardiomyopathy characterised by left ventricular systolic dysfunction in association with stressful conditions. Patients with this condition usually present with chest pain and dyspnoea, and the presentation can mimic acute coronary syndrome. We present a case of a woman aged 58 years who presented with progressive dyspnoea and cough. Her initial evaluation was suggestive of acute myocardial infarction with elevated serum troponin T and ST segment elevation...

Introduction. Classically, stress-induced cardiomyopathy (SIC), also known as takotsubo cardiomyopathy, displays the pathognomonic feature of reversible left ventricular apical ballooning without coronary artery stenosis following stressful event(s). Temporary reduction in ejection fraction (EF) resolves spontaneously. Variants of SIC exhibiting mid-ventricular regional wall motion abnormalities have been identified. Recent case series present SIC as a finding in association with sudden unexplained death in epilepsy (SUDEP)...

BACKGROUND: Takotsubo cardiomyopathy (TCM) is caused by excessive physical and mental stress, and sometimes causes potentially fatal arrhythmias such as torsades de pointes. This study characterized the features of TCM due to aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH), particularly the delayed normalization of electrocardiograms compared to that of transthoracic echocardiograms. METHODS: Ten patients with TCM were selected from the 450 SAH patients treated in our hospital between January 2007 and November 2015...

Takotsubo cardiomyopathy (CT) is a syndrome characterized by an acute and transient left ventricular dysfunction, electrocardiographic abnormalities suggestive of acute coronary syndrome, chest pain and/or dyspnea, left ventricular mid-apical segments akinesia and normal coronary angiography. It is mainly observed in postmenopausal women after an intense physical or mental stress. The course is usually favourable but sometimes severe complications occur. The recurrence rate is 2-10%. We present the case of a recurrence of CT in a female, 79 years old, with hypertension, diabetes, chronic kidney disease (CKD) stage 3 who was admitted to the emergency room for dyspnea and vomiting...
