AbstractAbstract PDF
Takotsubo cardiomyopathy is a transient systolic and diastolic left ventricular dysfunction that presents several wall-motion abnormalities, while the coronary artery shows normal findings. Because patients with Takotsubo cardiomyopathy present with symptoms similar to acute coronary syndrome, the initial diagnosis and treatment are often difficult. The condition is often precipitated by acute emotional or physical stress and frequently occurs in postmenopausal women. Takotsubo cardiomyopathy may also occur in the perioperative period after cardiac and noncardiac surgery; surgery-associated Takotsubo cardiomyopathy reportedly accounts for 3%–23% of all cases. Of these perioperative cases, cardiothoracic surgery accounted for 16%. However, few cases have been reported in patients undergoing cardiac surgery and managed with extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO). We report a case of Takotsubo cardiomyopathy managed with ECMO in a patient in the intensive care unit after mitral valve replacement.

AbstractAbstract PDF
Flexible bronchoscopy is a safe medical procedure, but the incidence rate of major complications is 0.08-0.3%. Here, we report 2 cases of stress induced cardiomyopathy, which developed immediately after flexible bronchoscopy. Stress related cardiomyopathy was confirmed by EKG, echocardiography, and coronary angiogram. The cardiac functions of these patients were fully recovered with conservative treatment. Although, the pathogenesis of stress related cardiomyopathy is not well understood, post-bronchoscopy tachycardia or arrhythmia is thought to be associated with hypoxemia or catecholamine excess. Because the clinical presentation is quite similar to acute myocardial infarction, discrete evaluations are required for appropriate treatment.

AbstractAbstract PDF
'Takotsubo cardiomyopathy' or 'stress-induced cardiomyopathy' is a newly described clinical entity that's characterized by transient left ventricular apical ballooning and left ventricular apical dyskinesis in the absence of any angiographic feature of significant coronary artery disease. The cause of takotsubo cardiomyopathy is unclear, but catecholamines probably play a role in the genesis of takotsubo cardiomyopathy. We report here on two cases of takotsubo cardiomyopathy that occurred during ICU care.

AbstractAbstract PDF
A 67-year old woman, hospitalized for the management of infectious colitis, developed acute congestive heart failure. Two-dimensional echocardiography revealed left ventricular apical akinesia (ballooning) and basal hyperkinesis, which was compatible with stress cardiomyopathy. A marked QT prolongation and T wave inversion followed by nonsustained polymorphic ventricular tachycardia was noted in the electrocardiogram. Intravenous administration of magnesium completely suppressed the ventricular tachycardia. After recovery from the colitis, the follow-up ECG and echocardiogram were normalized. There was no evidence of ischemic heart disease in the coronary angiography or perfusion scan. Takotsubo cardiomyopathy is one of the most important causes of acquired QT prolongation in ICU (intensive care unit) patients.. A careful monitoring of the QT interval in these patients is warranted particularly when drugs causing QT prolongation are used.
