The pathophysiology of stress cardiomyopathy (SCM), also known as takotsubo syndrome, is poorly understood. SCM usually occurs sporadically, often in association with a stressful event, but clusters of cases are reported after major natural disasters. There is some evidence that this is a familial condition. We have examined three possible models for an underlying genetic predisposition to SCM. Our primary study cohort consists of 28 women who suffered SCM as a result of two devastating earthquakes that struck the city of Christchurch, New Zealand, in 2010 and 2011...

BACKGROUND: Chemotherapy-induced cardiomyopathy is a critical complication of treatment for cancer. The emotional stress of a cancer diagnosis, ongoing chemotherapy, abnormal cancer-related wasting syndrome may contribute to cardiac morbidity in these patients. The burden of Takotsubo Cardiomyopathy (TCM) in cancer patients is unknown. The incidence of TCM and related outcomes in cancer patients was investigated in this study. METHODS: The 2007-2013 National Inpatient Sample (NIS) was analyzed for patients with a prior and new diagnosis of TCM with and without malignancy...

Takotsubo cardiomyopathy, also known as "broken heart syndrome," is a transient left ventricular dysfunction associated with stress (usually emotional) induced myocardial injury and stunning. It often presents as myocardial infarction on surface electrocardiogram (EKG). Diagnosis is made by coronary angiography, which rules out coronary artery disease and shows pathognomonic apical ballooning. In this article, we present a case of a 72-year-old woman who initially presented with an ST segment elevation myocardial infarction on EKG...

Cardiac computed tomography (CT) now plays an important role in emergency settings because of its accessibility and fast acquisition time, which cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (CMR) cannot match. Although cardiac CT was originally conceived for the assessment of the coronary artery tree, it has evolved to embrace several non-coronary applications. These include myocardial assessment, resulting in myocardial characterization comparable with that of CMR and cardiac CT for late enhancement imaging. In this report, we describe a patient with takotsubo cardiomyopathy who underwent a comprehensive assessment using cardiac CT...

BACKGROUND: Limited data exists on readmission among patients with takotsubo cardiomyopathy [TC], a commonly reversible cause of heart failure. We sought to identify etiologies and predictors for readmission among TC patients. METHODS: We queried the National Readmissions Database for 2013-2014 to identify patients with primary admission for TC using ICD-9CM code 429.83. Patients who were readmitted to the hospital within 1-month post-discharge were further evaluated to identify etiologies, predictors and the resultant economic burden of readmission...

Background: Takotsubo cardiomyopathy (TC) aetiology has not been completely understood yet. One proposed pathogenic mechanism was coronary microvascular dysfunction (MVD). This study compared coronary flow and myocardial perfusion in patients with TC, microvascular angina (MVA), and a control group (CG). Methods: Out of 42 consecutive patients presented to our centre with TC from 2013 to 2017; we retrospectively selected 27 patients. We compared them with a sex- and age-matched group of 27 MVA cases and 27 patients with normal coronary arteries (CG)...

Background: The pathophysiology of takotsubo syndrome (TTS) is unclear so far. There is strong association of the occurrence of TTS and malignant diseases. An association between malignant diseases and myocardial infarction (MI) was found recently and ascribed to common molecular and lifestyle mechanisms. In the current study, we compared the outcome of patients with MI or TTS and malignant diseases in a matched cohort. Methods: Patients with TTS or with MI (n = 138 per group) were matched for age and sex and assessed retrospectively and prospectively...

INTRODUCTION: The classical pathophysiological process underlying acute coronary syndromes has been considered to be plaque rup-ture followed by platelet activation and aggregation and subsequent thrombus formation leading to myocardial ischemia and infarction. A substantial number of patients with acute coronary syndromes appear to have normal or near normal (<50% stenosis) coronary arteries on angiography. Recently, this clinical entity has been coined MINOCA (Myocardial Infarction with Non-Obstructive Coronary Arteries)...

Takotsubo cardiomyopathy (TC) is a syndrome characterized by transient local systolic dysfunction of the left ventricle with no evidence of coronary artery disease or acute plaque rupture. We present the case of 71-year-old woman who developed TC after two-stage surgery for double primary lung cancer. On computed tomography, lung nodules were identified in the left upper and right middle lobes. Based on the diagnosis of double primary lung cancer, we performed two-stage surgery (left upper lobectomy followed by right middle lobectomy)...

Reverse takotsubo cardiomyopathy is an uncommon cardiomyopathy characterized by reversible regional wall motion abnormalities in the basilar segment of the left ventricle. This happens in the absence of any coronary artery pathology. Although it shares some pathogenic mechanisms with its more common variant, takotsubo cardiomyopathy, differences exist in terms of echocardiographic features, demographics, clinical manifestations, laboratory features, and prognosis. Cases of postoperative reverse takotsubo cardiomyopathy are less described in the literature...

Takotsubo syndrome (TTS) has been recognized as a benign condition mainly due to its reversibility. However, recent researches have demonstrated that serious cardiac complications could occur during hospitalization. Thus, the aim of this study is to detect factors associated with in-hospital cardiac complications in patients with TTS. A total of 154 consecutive patients with TTS were enrolled retrospectively. In-hospital cardiac complications were observed in 61 patients (40%), including 44 patients with pulmonary edema (29%) and 25 patients with cardiogenic shock (16%)...

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.

BACKGROUND: Takotsubo syndrome (TTS), a form of acute transient heart failure, has been associated with severe complications and considerable mortality rates. N-Terminal Pro-B-Type Natriuretic Peptide (NT-proBNP) might serve as a marker to identify high-risk patients but has not yet been investigated regarding prognostic implications in TTS. Aim of this study was to determine the short- and long-term prognostic utility of NT-proBNP in patients with TTS. METHODS: The predictive value of admission NT-proBNP was assessed in an international, multicenter study including 177 consecutive TTS patients...

Stress-induced heart failure, also known as Broken Heart Syndrome or Takotsubo Syndrome, is a phenomenon characterized as rare but well described in the literature, with increasing incidence. While more commonly associated with postmenopausal women with psychiatric disorders, this entity is found in the postoperative patient. The nonischemic cardiogenic shock manifests as biventricular failure with significant decreases in ejection fraction and cardiac function. In a review of over 3000 kidney and liver transplantations over the course of 17 years within two transplant centers, we describe a series of 7 patients with Takotsubo Syndrome after solid organ transplantation...
