The Chicken or the Egg? An Interesting Case Presentation of Spontaneous Coronary Artery Dissection Versus Takotsubo Cardiomyopathy.

Cureus 2020 Apr 23;12(4):e7793. Epub 2020 Apr 23.

Cardiology, University of Illinois College of Medicine at Peoria, Peoria, USA.

This is an interesting cardiovascular imaging and coronary angiography case of a 67-year-old female patient who presented with chest pain, abnormal electrocardiogram (EKG), and heart failure who was subsequently found to have spontaneous coronary artery dissection (SCAD) and Takotsubo cardiomyopathy (TCM) on imaging studies. The case presentation highlights the importance of imaging studies and prompt diagnosis in these patients. This study may also highlight the need for early medical intervention in patients with suspected systolic dysfunction due to either of these pathophysiologic processes. Read More

Stress cardiomyopathy associated with area postrema syndrome as a presentation of neuromyelitis optica: case report.

BMC Neurol 2020 May 21;20(1):201. Epub 2020 May 21.

Department of Neurology, Hallym University Sacred Heart Hospital, Hallym University College of Medicine, Anyang, South Korea.

Background: Stress cardiomyopathy (Takotsubo cardiomyopathy) is very rare in the central nervous system (CNS) demyelinating disorders. Although this dysfunction of the heart-brain axis has been reported in several case series related to multiple sclerosis (MS), stress cardiomyopathy by neuromyelitis optica (NMO), which is rarer CNS demyelinating disorder than MS, is extremely rare. Herein, we report a case of stress cardiomyopathy associated with a medullary lesion as a presentation of NMO. Read More

Comparative left ventricular mechanical deformation in acute apical variant stress cardiomyopathy and acute anterior myocardial infarction utilizing 2-dimensional longitudinal strain imaging.

Echocardiography 2020 May 21. Epub 2020 May 21.

Division of Cardiovascular Medicine, University of Massachusetts Medical School, Worcester, MA, USA.

Aims: Despite three decades of study, it is still challenging to discriminate acute apical variant stress cardiomyopathy (AVSCM) from acute left anterior descending-myocardial infarction (LAD-MI) at the time of presentation. A biomarker or practical imaging modality that can differentiate these two entities is highly desirable. Our objective was to characterize left ventricular (LV) mechanical deformation using 2-dimensional (2D) echocardiographic strain imaging in an attempt to discriminate AVSCM from LAD-MI at presentation.

Increased Catecholamine Levels and Inflammatory Mediators Alter Barrier Properties of Brain Microvascular Endothelial Cells .

Front Cardiovasc Med 2020 5;7:73. Epub 2020 May 5.

Department of Anaesthesia and Critical Care, University of Würzburg, Würzburg, Germany.

Recent studies have suggested a pathogenetic link between ischemic stroke and Takotsubo cardiomyopathy (TCM) with poor outcome, when occurring simultaneously. Increased catecholamine (CAT) levels as well as elevated inflammatory mediators (INF) are found in the blood of patients with ischemic stroke concomitant with Takotsubo syndrome (TTS). On molecular level, the impact of these stressors combined with hypoxemia could compromise the integrity of the blood brain barrier (BBB) resulting in poor outcomes. Read More

Effect of Remote Ischemic Conditioning in Patients With Takotsubo Syndrome After Acute Stroke: Study Protocol for a Randomized Controlled Trial.

Front Neurol 2020 28;11:286. Epub 2020 Apr 28.

Department of Neurosurgery, Xuanwu Hospital, Capital Medical University, Beijing, China.

Takotsubo syndrome (TTS) is an acute heart failure syndrome which is preceded by a variety of emotional or physical triggers, with central nervous system conditions being an important trigger. Remote ischemic conditioning (RIC) is a promising interventional treatment based on the probability that both TTS and acute coronary syndrome may respond similarly to interventions. The heart protection effect of RIC has been repeatedly confirmed in animal models and observational clinical trials; however, it has never been studied in patients with TTS after acute stroke in randomized clinical trials with a higher level of evidence.

Takotsubo Cardiomyopathy: A Brief Review.

J Med Life 2020 Jan-Mar;13(1):3-7

Indonesian Medical Education and Research Institute, Faculty of Medicine, University of Indonesia, Jakarta, Indonesia.

Takotsubo cardiomyopathy is a reversible cardiomyopathy with a unique morphological feature of the left ventricle characterized by an apical ballooning appearance known for approximately known 25 years. Catecholamine drive plays an essential role in the pathogenesis and pathophysiology of Takotsubo cardiomyopathy; hence, it is also called stress cardiomyopathy. Physical stress could also have an impact and leads to a greater variety of characteristics in Takotsubo cardiomyopathy. Read More

Colombo North Teaching Hospital, Ragama, Sri Lanka.

Takotsubo or stress cardiomyopathy is a non ischemic disease affecting the myocardium, which presents with typical features of myocardial ischemia. Although the presentation with acute central chest pain and shortness of breath mimics acute myocardial ischemia, there is an absence of actual disruption of cardiac blood supply via the coronaries due to acute plaque rupture or vascular spasm. The underlying pathophysiology of this clinical entity remains largely unclear, but a definite association with physical or emotional stress has been well established, hence the term "stress cardiomyopathy.

Distinctive Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy Anatomy and Obstructive Physiology in Patients Admitted With Takotsubo Syndrome.

Am J Cardiol 2020 Jun 5;125(11):1700-1709. Epub 2020 Mar 5.

Soter Center for Women's Cardiovascular Research, NYU Langone Health, New York City, NY, USA.

Clinical spectrum of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HC) has been expanded to include patients with mild or no thickening of the left ventricle (LV), who nevertheless have outflow tract obstruction at rest or after exercise, due to systolic anterior motion (SAM) and ventricular septal contact, with mitral valve elongation and papillary muscles anomalies. Apical ballooning mimicking a takotsubo syndrome (TS) wall motion pattern can occur in HC with mild septal thickening when latent obstruction becomes unrelenting. To define the prevalence of anatomic abnormalities characteristic of HC in patients diagnosed with TS, we analyzed echocardiograms of 44 unselected TS patients, age 67±12 years, 95% women including studies performed before the event (n = 11, median 515 days) and after recovery of left ventricular function (n = 33, median 92 days, interquartile range = 29 to 327) and compared the findings to 60 age and sexed matched controls.

Takotsubo syndrome (TTS), also known as stress cardiomyopathy, is a type of acute heart failure syndrome triggered by intense psychological or physiological stress. TTS typically manifests as acute chest pain, dyspnea or syncope that mimics an acute myocardial infarction but does not involve coronary artery obstruction. The current understanding of the pathogenesis of TTS suggests that sympathetic nervous system (SNS) activation plays a central role. Read More

Takotsubo cardiomyopathy (TC) is a temporal dysfunction of the left ventricle (LV) due to psychological or physiological stress; however, it rarely causes LV thrombus. We report a case of a 49-year-old woman who developed LV thrombi due to TC despite anticoagulation therapy. The thrombi caused acute systemic infarction, with the most severe occlusion being in the right renal artery. Read More

Takotsubo Cardiomyopathy presenting with different morphological patterns in the same patient: a case report and review of the literature.

Cardiovasc Pathol 2020 Jan 15;47:107204. Epub 2020 Jan 15.

Background: Takotsubo Cardiomyopathy is characterized by transient left ventricular systolic dysfunction, which often mimics a myocardial infarction and is usually triggered by emotional or physical stress. There are four variants of Takotsubo Cardiomyopathy, based on the affected left ventricular area.

Case: We report a 75-year-old female with a past medical history of diabetes mellitus, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, and chronic kidney disease who presented with chest pain that had started after a stressful, emotional event. Read More

Inverted Takotsubo Cardiomyopathy Associated With the Consumption of a Weight Management Supplement.

CJC Open 2020 Jan 16;2(1):26-29. Epub 2019 Nov 16.

Department of Cardiovascular Medicine, St Luke's International Hospital, Tokyo, Japan.

Inverted takotsubo cardiomyopathy (ITC) is a rare disease that has a strong association with pheochromocytoma and intracranial hemorrhage. We describe the case of a patient who developed ITC after an extra dose, along with chronic exposure, of a weight management supplement containing caffeine and amphetamine-like stimulants, a combination that could potentially raise the local sympathetic tone of the myocardium. The patient was managed conservatively and recovered in 2 months. Read More

Takotsubo in Acute and Chronic Coronary Artery Disease.

CJC Open 2019 Sep 2;1(5):264-267. Epub 2019 Jul 2.

Division of Cardiology, Mount Sinai Hospital, Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

Cardiomyopathy of Takotsubo syndrome (TS) is typically triggered by an emotional stress in postmenopausal women. Coexistent coronary artery disease presents diagnostic dilemmas in patients with TS, as seen in the 2 cases presented. In the first case, acute coronary syndrome acts as a physical trigger for TS when a middle-aged man presents with an inferior myocardial infarct, and in the second case, coronary artery disease is a bystander when an elderly woman develops TS after a fall and facial trauma.

Cardiology Department, CHU Saint-Pierre, 322 rue Haute, B-1000 Brussels, Belgium.

A healthy 66-year-old female presented to the emergency department with acute chest pain, T-wave inversion in the anterior leads, and elevated troponin-I. Coronary angiography showed a stenosis in the midportion of the left anterior descending coronary artery (LAD), which did not wrap the left ventricle (LV) apex. LV angiography demonstrated a large LV apical akinetic systolic ballooning with a 45% ejection fraction. Read More

Takotsubo syndrome in a heart transplant recipient with poor cardiac sympathetic reinnervation.

ESC Heart Fail 2020 Mar 10. Epub 2020 Mar 10.

Department of Cardiovascular Medicine, Faculty of Medical Sciences, Kyushu University, 3-1-1 Maidashi, Higashi-Ku, Fukuoka, 812-8582, Japan.

Takotsubo syndrome (TTS), also referred to as stress cardiomyopathy, is characterized by transient left ventricular apical ballooning in the absence of obstructive coronary artery disease. Catecholamine-induced cardiac injury or vasospasm has been implicated in this pathophysiology. We present a case of a 67-year-old man 10 years after heart transplantation diagnosed with TTS.
