Mechanisms of ST Elevation Myocardial Infarction in Patients Hospitalized for Noncardiac Conditions.

Am J Cardiol 2019 Feb 7. Epub 2019 Feb 7.

Division of Cardiology University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, North Carolina; McAllister Heart Institute, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, North Carolina. Electronic address:

ST elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) occurring in patients hospitalized for a noncardiac condition is associated with a high mortality rate and thus we sought to determine the mechanisms underlying STEMI in this patient population. This is a single center retrospective study of 70 patients who had STEMI while hospitalized on a noncardiac service and underwent coronary angiography. Thrombotic in-hospital STEMI was defined by angiographic or intravascular imaging evidence of intracoronary thrombus, plaque rupture, or stent thrombosis. Read More

Takotsubo cardiomyopathy and neurogenic pulmonary edema after carotid endarterectomy.

World Neurosurg 2019 Jan 17. Epub 2019 Jan 17.

Department of Neurosurgery, Brain Attack Center, Ota Memorial Hospital, Fukuyama, Hiroshima, Japan.

Background: Takotsubo cardiomyopathy (TCM) and neurogenic pulmonary edema (NPE) are rare complications of an acute ischemic stroke. In particular, TCM and NPE, following carotid endarterectomy (CEA) are extremely rare. In general, TCM- and NPE-associated ischemic strokes are caused by excess catecholamine release after sympathetic nervous stimulation following stroke onset, but the mechanism triggering this stimulation is still unknown.

School of Medicine, Medical Sciences & Nutrition, University of Aberdeen, Foresterhill, Aberdeen, Scotland, United Kingdom.

Takotsubo cardiomyopathy is an acute stress-induced heart failure syndrome for which the exact pathogenic mechanisms are unclear, and consequently, no specific treatment exists. In an experimental model of stress-induced takotsubo-like cardiomyopathy, the authors describe the temporal course of a chronic inflammatory response post-induction, with an initial early influx of neutrophils into myocardial tissue followed by macrophages that are typical of a proinflammatory M1 phenotype, and a nonsignificant increase in systemic inflammatory cytokines. Post-mortem myocardium from the more complex clinical takotsubo patients share features of the study's experimental model. Read More

Distinct Incidence of Takotsubo Syndrome Between Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Synucleinopathies: A Cohort Study.

Front Neurol 2018 13;9:1099. Epub 2018 Dec 13.

Department of Clinical Neuroscience, Institute of Biomedical Sciences, Tokushima University Graduate School, Tokushima, Japan.

Takotsubo syndrome (TTS) is an acute cardiac syndrome characterized by regional left ventricular dysfunction with a peculiar circumferential pattern, which typically results in apical ballooning. Evidence indicates a pivotal role of catecholamines in TTS, and researchers have discussed multiple hypotheses on the etiology, including multivessel coronary spasm, myocardial stunning, excessive transient ventricular afterload, and cardiac sympathetic overactivity with local noradrenaline spillover. Although central nervous system disorders, such as stroke and epilepsy, are known to trigger TTS, the incidence and clinical features of TTS in neurodegenerative disorders are poorly understood.

Department of Internal Medicine, Mercer University School of Medicine, Macon, GA, USA.

Takotsubo cardiomyopathy (TTC) was first described in Japan in the 1980s. It is described as an acute but often reversible left ventricular (LV) dysfunction mainly triggered by emotional or physical stress. Multiple variants of TTC have been reported including reverse Takotsubo cardiomyopathy (rTTC) which is a variant characterized by the basal akinesis/hypokinesis associated with apical hyperkinesis that resolves spontaneously.

Takotsubo cardiomyopathy (TC) is a form of dilated cardiomyopathy often associated with physical or emotional stress. Association with cancer has been reported, however, in-hospital outcomes in TC patients with history of malignancy have not been fully characterized. We conducted a retrospective chart review of hospitalized patients with diagnosis of TC between January 2006 and January 2017. Read More

Myocardial and Systemic Inflammation in Acute Stress-Induced (Takotsubo) Cardiomyopathy.

Circulation 2018 Nov 11. Epub 2018 Nov 11.

Aberdeen Cardiovascular and Diabetes Centre, University of Aberdeen, United Kingdom.

Background: Acute stress induced (takotsubo) cardiomyopathy can result in a heart failure phenotype with a prognosis comparable to myocardial infarction. In this study, we hypothesized that inflammation is central to the pathophysiology and natural history of takotsubo cardiomyopathy.

Methods: In a multi-centre study, we prospectively recruited 55 patients with takotsubo cardiomyopathy and 51 age, sex and co-morbidity matched control subjects. Read More

Mid-Left Ventricular Ballooning Variant Takotsubo Syndrome Induced by Treadmill Exercise Stress Testing.

Case Rep Cardiol 2018 15;2018:5282747. Epub 2018 Nov 15.

Department of Medicine, Stony Brook University Medical Center, USA.

Stress-induced cardiomyopathy, also known as takotsubo cardiomyopathy, presents similar to a myocardial infarction after a physical or emotional stressor but without any evidence of obstructive coronary artery disease. Different patterns of myocardial involvement and several triggering events have been reported, but classically this condition is characterized by a stress-induced transient left ventricular apical systolic dysfunction. We describe a case of treadmill exercise stress testing-triggered variant of takotsubo cardiomyopathy with mid-left ventricular hypokinesis. Read More

BMJ Case Rep 2018 Dec 9;11(1). Epub 2018 Dec 9.

Department of Cardiology, University of Rochester Medical Center, Rochester, New York, USA.

Pheochromocytoma is a rare catecholamine-secreting tumour that is typically located in the adrenal medulla or along the sympathetic ganglia. The typical symptoms are episodic in nature and include tachycardia, sweating and headache. These tumours can present as transient, reversible cardiomyopathy similar to takotsubo cardiomyopathy (TCM). Read More
