BACKGROUND: Takotsubo syndrome is a rare, stress-related, and reversible form of acute heart failure primarily affecting postmenopausal women. It is characterized by left ventricular dysfunction with a classic apical and midventricular wall motion abnormality (apical ballooning). CASE: A 28-year-old woman, gravida 2 para 1, at 30 4/7 weeks of gestation was admitted with fetal bradycardia, a fully dilated cervix, and breech presentation. During emergency cesarean delivery, the patient had intraoperative cardiac arrest...

BACKGROUND: Peripartum cardiomyopathy (PPCM) is a heterogeneous condition characterized by heart failure and left ventricular dysfunction (left ventricular ejection fraction [LVEF] < 45%) in the absence of an alternative cause and a previous diagnosis of cardiomyopathy. The Aboriginal population (Inuit, First Nations, Metis) of Canada often has barriers to health care, which can lead to delays in diagnosis and treatment. Our objectives are to describe PPCM in a Canadian population, and to determine if Canadian Aboriginal women have worse clinical outcomes than non-Aboriginal women...

Vasoinhibins (Vi) are fragments of the growth hormone/prolactin (PRL) family and have antiangiogenic functions in many species. It is considered that Vi derived from PRL are involved in the pathogenesis of peripartum cardiomyopathy (PPCM). However, the pathogenic mechanism of PPCM, as well as heart angiogenesis, is not yet clear. Therefore, the aim of the present study is to clarify whether Vi act directly on angiogenesis inhibition in heart blood vessels. Endothelial cell viability was decreased by Vi treatment in a culture experiment...

BACKGROUND: Maternal mortality is noticeably high in sub-Saharan African countries including Ethiopia. Continuous nationwide systematic evaluation and assessment of the problem helps to design appropriate policy and strategy in Ethiopia. This study aimed to investigate the trends and causes of maternal mortality in Ethiopia between 1990 and 2013. METHODS: We used the Global Burden of Diseases and Risk factors (GBD) Study 2013 data that was collected from multiple sources at national and subnational levels...

AIMS: Peripartum cardiomyopathy (PPCM) is a systolic left ventricular dysfunction developing in the peripartum phase in previously healthy women. Relaxin-2 is a pregnancy hormone with potential beneficial effects in heart failure patients. We evaluated Relaxin-2 as a potential diagnostic marker and/or a therapeutic agent in PPCM. METHODS AND RESULTS: In healthy peripartum women, serum Relaxin-2 levels (measured by ELISA in the second half of pregnancy) were elevated showing a decreasing trend in the first postpartum week and returned to non-pregnant levels thereafter...

Peripartum cardiomyopathy is a weakness of the heart muscle. It is an idiopathic cardiomyopathy that presents with heart failure secondary to left ventricular systolic dysfunction toward the end of pregnancy or in the months after delivery, in the absence of any other cause of heart failure. It is a rare condition that can carry mild or severe symptoms.

BACKGROUND: The physiological changes associated with pregnancy may predispose pregnant women to pulmonary edema. Other known causes of pulmonary edema during pregnancy include tocolytic drugs, preeclampsia, eclampsia, and peripartum cardiomyopathy. METHODS: We describe a rare case of pulmonary edema caused by takotsubo cardiomyopathy in a pregnant woman at 14 weeks of gestation who was undergoing emergency transvaginal cervical cerclage. RESULTS: Intraoperative chest radiography revealed severe pulmonary edema and echocardiography indicated moderate left ventricular dysfunction with akinesia of the mid to apical left ventricular wall segment, which is reflective of takotsubo cardiomyopathy...

AIMS: Heart failure (HF) in late pregnancy and postpartum (HFPP) of which peripartum cardiomyopathy (PPCM) comprises the larger part, is still a rare occurrence in Sweden. Population-based data are scarce. Our aim was to characterise HFPP and determine the incidence and mortality in a Swedish cohort. METHODS AND RESULTS: Through merging data from the National Inpatient, Cause of Death, and Medical Birth Registers, we identified ICD-10 codes for HF and cardiomyopathy, within 3 months before delivery up to 6 months postpartum...

Parturients may present with evidence of acute heart failure or respiratory distress during the peripartum period. This case report documents utilization of "stand-by" extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) for a 40-year-old woman with a history of severe left ventricular dysfunction who presented for elective dilation and evacuation of triplets at 20 weeks' gestation. The patient's medical history was significant for hypertension, diabetes mellitus, methamphetamine use (acute/chronic), and cardiac-respiratory arrest before her previous emergent cesarean delivery...

BACKGROUND: Recent studies suggest that angiogenic imbalance during pregnancy may lead to acute peripartum cardiomyopathy (PPCM). We propose that angiogenic imbalance and residual cardiac dysfunction may exist even after recovery from PPCM. METHODS AND RESULTS: Twenty-nine women at least 12 months after presentation with PPCM, who exhibited recovery of left ventricular (LV) ejection fraction (≥50%), were included in the study (mean age 35±6 years, LV ejection fraction 61...

BACKGROUND: Immune response has been postulated to play a prominent role in the pathogenesis of peripartum cardiomyopathy (PPCM). Given the importance of programmed death (PD)-1 and its ligand B7 homologue 1 (B7-H1) costimulatory molecules as an immune regulatory pathway, this study aimed to investigate the effect of PD-1 and B7-H1 expression on immune response in peripheral blood lymphocytes from the patients with PPCM. HYPOTHESIS: PD-1 and B7-H1 may be involved in modulating immune response in PPCM...

Sinus venosus atrial septal defect is a rare congenital, interatrial communication defect at the junction of the right atrium and the vena cava. It accounts for 5-10% of cases of all atrial septal defects. Due to the rare prevalence and anatomical complexity, diagnosing sinus venous atrial septal defects poses clinical challenges which may delay diagnosis and treatment. Advanced cardiac imaging studies are useful tools to diagnose this clinical entity and to delineate the anatomy and any associated communications...

BACKGROUND: Peripartum cardiomyopathy is a rare form of dilated cardiomyopathy characterized by heart failure and left ventricular dysfunction associated with pregnancy. While clinical characteristics of these patients have been previously described in literature, there is limited data regarding the natural history and predictors of outcomes of these patients in Asia, most specifi cally in Filipino patients. METHODS: Clinical and echocardiographic data of 39 patients diagnosed with peripartum cardiomyopathy were analyzed...

BACKGROUND: Peripartum cardiomyopathy is often associated with severe heart failure occurring towards the end of pregnancy or in the months following birth with debilitating, exhausting and frightening symptoms requiring person-centered care. The aim of this study was to explore women's experiences of health care while being diagnosed with peripartum cardiomyopathy. METHOD: Qualitative interviews were conducted with 19 women with peripartum cardiomyopathy in Sweden, following consent...

OBJECTIVE: To determine frequency and prognostic factors of peripartum cardiomyopathy. METHODS: The prospective cohort study was conducted from April 2012 to September 2013 at Civil Hospital, Karachi. Cases were collected in the first year, and were then followed up for six months. On clinical and transthoracic 2-D M Mode echocardiography, cases of prepartum peripartum cardiomyopathy were detected. After necessary lab tests, cardiac opinion and treatment, pregnancy was terminated using caesarean section...

OBJECTIVE: Peripartum cardiomyopathy is a rare type of heart failure to which only pregnant women are susceptible. In Puerto Rico there is a paucity of information regarding this condition. In this report we describe our experience with peripartum cardiomyopathy. METHODS: This was a descriptive retrospective study. We conducted a chart review of all the patients with peripartum cardiomyopathy managed at our institution from January 2006 through December 2012. A total of 12 patients qualified for our analysis...
