Abstract :

Introduction: Takotsubo syndrome is a disorder characterized by transient left ventricular dysfunction which most commonly affect apex. It is often preceded by an emotional or physical stress. Objective: The objective of the study was to examine the clinical features of takotsubo cardiomyopathy. Methods: This retrospective study included a total of 41 consecutive patients who were admitted to Fukuyama Medical Center, Japan between May 2010 and April 2018. Results: The age of patients was 74.6±12.8 years, 29 female patients (71%), emotional stress 9 cases (22%), physical stress 34 cases (83%), 12 patients bearing cancer (29%) as an underlying disease, diabetes mellitus 12 cases (37%), hypertension 29 cases (71%), smoking history 12 cases (32%) and previous ischemic heart disease 7 cases (17%). We will examine 41 cases of takotsubo cardiomyopathy experienced at our hospital about age, sex, underlying disease, incentive, electrocardiographic findings, echogenic findings and treatment methods. 19 cases (46%) of cardiac insufficiency at the onset of Killip 2 or more, ECG findings: HR 92±24/min, atrial fibrillation (AF) 4 cases (9.8%), QTc 0.43±0.08 ms, QRS 89.2±18.3 ms, echocardiographic findings showed left ventricular proportion of 44.4±12.0%, estimated systolic pulmonary artery pressure 41.4±15.0 mmHg, blood biochemical data BNP 2703±121 pg/mL. Treatment was: diuretic use 26 cases (63%), catecholamine use 10 cases (25%), human atrial natriuretic peptide (hANP) 11 cases (27%), nasal intermittent positive pressure ventilation (NIPPV) 4 cases (9.8%) and ventilation with tracheal intubation 8 cases (19%). Prognosis: Heart failure death occurred in one person, cancer death in two persons in the remote period and a total of four cases (9.8%) for infection. Conclusions: Takotsubo cardiomyopathy occurred more frequently in elderly women and the prognosis was relatively good, but there was a tendency to be influenced by the underlying disease that became a trigger for the onset of the disease.
