Peripartum cardiomyopathy (PPCM), often classified as a form of dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM), is the myocardial dysfunction that occurs in late pregnancy and through the first few postpartum months.The aim of this study is to investigate the differences in the clinical outcomes of PPCM and DCM.Electronic medical records from 1997 to 2011 were retrieved from the Taiwan National Health Insurance Research Database. Patients with PPCM were compared with age- and clinical characteristics-matched patients with DCM...

AIM: We aimed to characterize the clinical course with focus on pharmacological management of peripartum cardiomyopathy (PPCM) in Sweden. METHODS: Twenty-four consecutive patients were retrospectively identified among women presenting with PPCM in Western Sweden. Of these, 14 had concomitant preeclampsia. There was only one fatality. The mean (standard deviation) left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) at diagnosis was 35.0 ± 9.9%. Ten women, 47.6%, required intensive care unit (ICU) admission...

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...

OBJECTIVES: Mechanical circulatory support (MCS) is a valuable option in the setting of cardiogenic shock (CS), although MCS use in severe forms of peripartum cardiomyopathy (PPCM) is underreported. We aimed to investigate maternal outcomes under MCS for refractory CS complicating PPCM. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed 10 consecutive patients (2010-2015) meeting diagnosis criteria of PPCM that were managed with peripheral veno-arterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (pVA-ECMO) for severe CS...

REVIEW
Mi-Jeong Kim, Mi-Seung Shin
Peripartum cardiomyopathy (PPCM) is an idiopathic cardiomyopathy that causes systolic heart failure (HF) in previously healthy young women. Despite latest remarkable achievement, unifying pathophysiologic mechanism is not well established. Considering close temporal relationship to pregnancy, the recent prolactin theory is promising. Abnormal short form of 16-kDa prolactin may be produced in the oxidative stress milieu, show anti-angiogenic effect and damage cardiovascular structure in late pregnancy. Future study is needed to determine whether abnormal prolactin system is useful as a biomarker for diagnosis and therapy of PPCM...

BACKGROUND: In peripartum cardiomyopathy, the prevalence of focal myocardial damage detected by late gadolinium enhancement (LGE) cardiovascular magnetic resonance is important to elucidate mechanisms of myocardial injury and cardiac dysfunction. LGE equates irreversible myocardial injury, but LGE prevalence in peripartum cardiomyopathy is uncertain. METHODS AND RESULTS: Among 100 women enrolled within the Investigations of Pregnancy Associated Cardiomyopathy cohort, we recruited 40 women at 13 centers to undergo LGE cardiovascular magnetic resonance, enrolled within the first 13 weeks postpartum...

AIMS: Subsequent pregnancies (SSPs) in patients with peripartum cardiomyopathy (PPCM) have a high risk of heart failure relapse. We report on outcome of SSPs in PPCM patients in Germany, Scotland, and South Africa. METHODS AND RESULTS: Among 34 PPCM patients with a SSP, pregnancy ended prematurely in four patients while it was full-term in 30. Overall relapse rate [left ventricular ejection fraction, LVEF <50% or death after at least 6-month follow-up] was 56% with 12% (4/34) mortality...

The peripartum cardiomyopathy (PPCM) is an idiopathic heart failure secondary to left-ventricular dysfunction occuring at the end of pregnancy or in the months after delivery. Other causes for heart failure must not exist. The current state of knowledge about PPCM, based on a mini-literature-review, will be presented. We will focus on peripartal anaesthesiologic management and the case of a patient with respiratory insufficiency and lung edema secondary to PPCM.

INTRODUCTION: Peripartum cardiomyopathy (PPCM) is a rare cardiomyopathy characterized by an acute reduction in left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF). Sudden deaths during the course of PPCM are reported to be elevated, the underlying mechanisms remains unknown. The aim of the present multi-centre study was to evaluate the arrhythmia burden in a multi-centre approach in patients with PPCM using a wearable cardioverter/defibrillator (WCD). METHODS AND RESULTS: Forty-nine patients from 16 German centres with newly diagnosed PPCM and LVEF ≤35% receiving a WCD were included in this retrospective analysis...

BACKGROUND: Peripartum cardiomyopathy (PPCM) is associated with significant morbidity and mortality. Arrhythmogenic causes of death have been implicated in a significant number of patients. However, there is a dearth of systematic studies evaluating the burden of arrhythmias in PPCM. METHODS: We used the Healthcare Utilization Project, Nationwide Inpatient Sample database (2007-2012) and identified 9841 hospitalizations for women aged ≥18years with a primary diagnosis of PPCM...

OBJECTIVES: The main aim was to evaluate the outcome of patients with peripartum cardiomyopathy (PPCM) within six months of diagnosis. The secondary aim was to describe demographic and clinical characteristics of patients with PPCM in Harare, Zimbabwe. METHODS: This was a prospective cohort study in which patients recruited into a detailed PPCM registry were followed up for six months. Echocardiograms were performed at enrolment, and three and six months after diagnosis, to determine left ventricular function...

Peripartum cardiomyopathy (PPCM) is a disease that typically affects young otherwise healthy women. As PPCM is associated with significant mortality, timely diagnosis is necessary to ensure appropriate care. To our knowledge, this represents the first reported case of PPCM presenting as symptomatic bradycardia. We describe the patient's clinical presentation and relevant findings and review the potential etiology and ramifications of bradycardia in patients with PPCM.

BACKGROUND: This study aimed to assess the prevalence of right ventricular diastolic dysfunction (RVDD) and its potential predictors in peripartum cardiomyopathy (PPCM) patients. METHODS: This was a cross-sectional study carried out in Nigeria. RVDD was defined and graded using Doppler filling and myocardial tissue Doppler velocities obtained at tricuspid annular level. RESULTS: Forty-three subjects with PPCM and mean age of 26.6 ± 7.0 years were recruited over 6 months...

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...
