Takotsubo cardiomyopathy in the intensive care unit.

Acute Med Surg 2019 Apr 1;6(2):152-157. Epub 2019 Mar 1.

Department of Emergency and Critical Care Medicine Kansai Medical University Osaka Japan.

Aims: An angiographic examination is necessary for the diagnosis of takotsubo cardiomyopathy (TTC). However, in the intensive care unit (ICU), intensivists often see patients in whom TTC cannot be diagnosed because they cannot undertake angiography due to the patient's poor general condition. We defined such cases as clinical TTC (cTTC) and investigated the incidence and background of cTTC in the ICU at Kansai Medical University Hospital (Osaka, Japan). Read More

Takotsubo cardiomyopathy in a man with no trigger and multiple cardioembolic complications-A rare constellation.

Echocardiography 2019 Apr 7. Epub 2019 Apr 7.

Division of Cardiology, Rush University Medical Center, Chicago, Illinois.

Takotsubo Cardiomyopathy (TC) is an uncommon, transient, reversible cardiomyopathy, with a classic pattern of wall-motion abnormalities, usually seen in women after an emotional stressor. Despite its increased recognition, there remain gaps in the exact mechanisms, predisposing factors, and predictors of recovery; this is particularly true for males where the condition occurs far less frequently than in females. TC typically resolves within weeks, and the prognosis is favorable compared to acute coronary syndromes. Read More

Biventricular takotsubo cardiomyopathy with asymmetrical wall motion abnormality between left and right ventricle: a report of new case and literature review.

J Echocardiogr 2019 Mar 23. Epub 2019 Mar 23.

Department of Cardiology, School of Medicine, Keio University, Tokyo, 160-8582, Japan.

Takotsubo cardiomyopathy (TC) is characterized by transient wall motion abnormalities most commonly involving the left ventricle (LV). Although biventricular TC had been considered uncommon condition, recently biventricular TC has been reported as a new variant observed in 19-42% of all TC presentations. Since biventricular TC has a poor prognosis as compared with isolated TC, it is important to distinguish between isolated LV TC and biventricular TC. Read More

Takotsubo syndrome and left ventricular non-compaction cardiomyopathy: Casualty or causality?

Auton Neurosci 2019 May 28;218:64-67. Epub 2019 Feb 28.

Department of Cardiovascular and Thoracic Sciences, Catholic University of the Sacred Heart, Rome, Italy; Fondazione Policlinico Universitario A. Gemelli, IRCCS, Rome, Italy.

Takotsubo syndrome (TS) is a condition of transient regional ventricular systolic dysfunction, usually presenting with acute chest pain and/or dyspnea, that is increasingly recognized especially in post-menopausal women following a psychological or physical stress. Initially considered as a benign condition with an isolated and self-limiting episode, it is now recognized that it is associated with a significant risk of in-hospital mortality and of recurrence. We herein describe a case of a 61-year-old female with left ventricular non-compaction cardiomyopathy (LVNC) who experienced a recurrence of TS, highlighting the potential pathophysiological role for LVNC in predisposing this syndrome and its recurrence.

Acute mitral regurgitation.

Authors:
Nozomi Watanabe

Heart 2019 May 1;105(9):671-677. Epub 2019 Mar 1.

Department of Clinical Laboratory, Noninvasive Cardiovascular Imaging, Miyazaki Medical Association Hospital Cardiovascular Center, Miyazaki, 880-0834, Japan.

The diagnosis of acute mitral regurgitation (MR) is often missed or delayed because the clinical presentation is substantially different from that in patients with chronic MR. Management of acute MR depends on the specific aetiology of valve dysfunction and there is a lack of consensus on the optimal therapeutic approach in many patients. In particular, management of secondary MR due to acute ischaemia is challenging because of unique mechanisms of valve incompetence compared with chronic ischaemic MR. Read More

Cardiogenic shock induced by Takotsubo cardiomyopathy in early postoperative adrenalectomy period.

Rev Esp Anestesiol Reanim 2019 Jan 18. Epub 2019 Jan 18.

Unidad de Reanimación Postoperatoria, Hospital Universitario de Canarias, España.

Takotsubo cardiomyopathy is part of the group of diseases called stress-induced cardiomyopathies. Its usual clinical presentation is indistinguishable from an acute coronary syndrome. However, early diagnosis is important, as it may debut as a cardiogenic shock in approximately 8% of cases, with morbidity and mortality rates comparable to those of acute coronary syndrome.

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.

The spectrum of acute cardiopulmonary events associated with multiple sclerosis exacerbations.

Mult Scler 2019 May 18;25(6):758-765. Epub 2019 Jan 18.

Department of Neurology, Mayo Clinic Arizona, Scottsdale, AZ, USA.

Diverse acute neurological injuries may cause acute cardiopulmonary events including neurogenic pulmonary edema (NPE) and neurogenic stunned myocardium (NSM). The mechanism is probably mediated by sympathetic nervous system activation. Focal central nervous system (CNS) lesions, such as demyelinating lesions in multiple sclerosis (MS), may also cause cardiopulmonary disturbances. Read More

Takotsubo Cardiomyopathy in a Patient with Preexisting Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy.

Cureus 2018 Nov 12;10(11):e3579. Epub 2018 Nov 12.

Cardiology, Staten Island University Hospital, Staten Island, USA.

Takotsubo cardiomyopathy (TCM) is a condition characterized by transient left ventricular dysfunction and apical ballooning, best seen on an echocardiogram or left ventriculogram. It mimics acute myocardial infarction but without evidence of coronary artery disease on an angiogram. Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) is an autosomal dominant heart muscle disease that is significant with hypertrophy of the left ventricle with various morphologies. Read More
