The Szeged cardiomyopathy and ion channel diseases registry aims to establish a representative disease-specific registry based on the recruitment of patients with different cardiomyopathies and ion channel diseases followed at the Cardiology Center, University of Szeged. The registry collects patient data on the main forms of primary cardiomyopathies (hypertrophic, dilated, restrictive, arrhythmogenic right ventricular, left ventricular non-compact, tako-tsubo cardiomyopathy) and ion channel diseases (long QT syndrome, short QT syndrome, Brugada syndrome, catecholaminergic polymorphic ventricular tachycardia)...

We report the case of early recurrence of Tako-Tsubo cardiomyopathy in an elderly woman with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis triggered by different stressors. A first episode with typical apical ballooning was anticipated by an emotional stress; a second, characterized by systolic anterior motion of the mitral valve associated with mitral regurgitation and severe intra-ventricular gradient, was precipitated by surgical stress and hypovolemia. We therefore hypothesize both a possible link between amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and Tako-Tsubo cardiomyopathy, and between different stressors and different Tako-Tsubo patterns...

We report a case of paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia complicating Tako-Tsubo cardiomyopathy. We hypothesize that increased adrenergic tone supposedly underlying transient apical ballooning syndrome may facilitate the onset of paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardias in predisposed patients.

Background - Acute coronary syndrome with high level of troponin is a common pattern for emergency consultation. In 10% of cases, coronary angiography concluded that there were no significant coronary lesions. The contribution of cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in the etiological investigation is increasing in these conditions. Aim - We analyzed the diagnostic value of cardiac MRI in case of acute coronary syndromes with elevated troponin and normal coronary angiography. Methods - It's a retrospective analytical study including 31 patients presenting with acute coronary syndrome with positive troponins and normal coronary angiography...

The cardiac impact of psychological stress historically and socially understood as boundary experiences of human life has long since become an icon. From the aching heart to the sudden death provoked by awe, horror, grief, anger, and humiliation on one side and extreme enchantment, enthusiasm, and excitement on the other, the broken heart has become a globally recognized and powerful metaphor present from folklore to popular culture to high literature and back to everyday communication. In medicine, the "broken heart syndrome" is described as a relatively new nosological entity that has been used synonymously with the term tako-tsubo or stress cardiomyopathy...

The pathogenesis of tako-tsubo syndrome remains, nowadays, unclear: it is likely that the relevance of the different proposed mechanisms differs among specific clinical contexts. In this paper, we describe the case of a 61-year-old woman admitted to the intensive cardiac care unit for pre-syncope and persistent hypotension. Clinical and echocardiographic data were suggestive of tako-tsubo syndrome with severe dynamic left ventricular outflow tract (LVOT) obstruction and severe mitral regurgitation. Coronary angiography was normal...

OBJECTIVES: To jointly describe clinical characteristics, ECG and echocardiographic findings, and adverse cardiovascular events in patients with tako-tsubo cardiomyopathy (TC) in the long-term. METHODS: Longitudinal multicenter study including retrospective analysis of clinical and ECG data, and follow-up evaluation with clinical interview, electrocardiogram and echocardiogram. RESULTS: Data from 66 cases of TC were available for analysis of clinical and adverse cardiovascular events, and 56 of them completed the follow-up visit including electrocardiogram and echocardiogram...

Stress cardiomyopathy (SC) is characterized by transient left ventricular (LV) wall motion abnormalities typically involving the apex with preserved basal contractility, chest discomfort, ST-T ischemic changes and elevated cardiac markers with normal or non-flow limiting coronary artery lesions. It represents an important differential diagnosis of Acute Coronary Syndromes caused by atherosclerotic vessel occlusion; most commonly, Tako-tsubo occurs in postmenopausal women after physical or emotional stress. While the exact mechanism of SC remains controversial, various hypotheses have been suggested concerning the vascular, central nervous and endocrine system participation where catecholamines, particularly epinephrine, seem to play a major role...

Acute cardiac dysfunctions associated to neuroblastoma have rarely been reported. Cases already described are mainly related to high blood pressure, and rarely to an "acute catecholamine cardiomyopathy" more frequently found in adults with pheochromocytoma or secreting paraganglioma. We here report a case of an 8-month-old infant with severe acute cardiac failure with dilated cardiomyopathy and moderate ischemic myocardial signs, revealing a favorable histoprognosis neuroblastoma. After specific treatment, evolution was favorable, and cardiac function completely recovered...

We present a case of Takotsubo cardiomyopathy (TTC) with regional variation in left ventricular function precipitated by intraocular injection of phenylephrine. To our knowledge, this is the first described case of TTC occurring in the setting of an intraocular medication. Contrary to the traditional model of the β2-receptor underlying the pathophysiology behind Takotsubo cardiomyopathy, phenylephrine is a pure α1-agonist implicating alternative mechanisms of myocardial injury resulting in a similar clinical phenotype...

OBJECTIVE: To provide information specific to a catecholaminergic storm during a violent stress in children. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Two clinical observations in children who suffered violent trauma. RESULTS: HASH(0x32542d8) FIRST CASE: a boy aged 12 years victim of a drowning in Stage 3 admitted to the pediatric intensive care 02.08.2015. He was intubated, ventilated, sedated with benzodiazepines and morphine. Cardiac exploration revealed a global hypokinesis with septal dyskinesia, a 45% FES offset a slight excess of ST, a troponin I to 31...

Tako-tsubo cardiomyopathy (TTC) is a syndrome characterized by acute transient ventricular dysfunction in the absence of obstructive coronary artery disease and is predominantly associated with exposure to sudden emotional or physical stress. Patients with TTC may develop serious in-hospital complications, including ventricular arrhythmias. However, triggering of TTC after an electrical storm has not previously been described. We present two cases of TTC induced by multiple shocks in the setting of an electrical storm due to pharmacologically induced long QT syndrome...

BACKGROUND: In 2011 a list of 20 drugs linked to drug-induced Tako-Tsubo cardiomyopathy (TCM) was published. Thus, the objectives were both to identify cases of drug-induced TCM, and update the 2011 list of drugs as possible triggers of this cardiomyopathy. METHOD: As the 2011 report of drug-induced TCM, case reports of drug-induced TCM were identified by a comprehensive search in Medline/PubMed database. From December 2010 to March 2015 search terms were Takotsubo cardiomyopathy, Takotsubo cardiomyopathy, stress cardiomyopathy, transient-left-ventricular ballooning syndrome, ampulla cardiomyopathy, apical ballooning syndrome, OR broken heart syndrome; together with "iatrogenic", "drug-induced", OR "induced by"...

BACKGROUND: Clinically isolated syndromes affecting the brainstem may present with rare manifestations such as neurogenic pulmonary oedema (NPO). OBJECTIVES: We present the case of a 23 year-old man with NPO caused by Tako-Tsubo cardiomyopathy (TTC) as a first manifestation of multiple sclerosis (MS). METHODS AND RESULTS: A brain magnetic resonance imaging scan at admission showed multiple supra and infratentorial white matter inflammatory demyelinating lesions...
