  • A unique case of acute brain haemorrhage with left ventricular systolic failure requiring ECMO. [Journal Article]
    BMC Pediatr 2019; 19(1):278Fu KX, Ng BHZ, Chua MHX
  • CONCLUSIONS: This is a captivating case depicting a series of unfortunate and unpredictable clinical events occurring in a previously well infant, which at initial presentation challenged the managing team with regards to its exact aetiology of acute brain injury and acute cardiorespiratory failure. Consideration of various differential diagnoses and finally narrowing down to that of stress-induced reversible cardiomyopathy (Takotsubo syndrome) following his intracranial bleed, versus that of coexisting dual pathology - acute brain injury with concomitant acute viral myocarditis, deepened our understanding of the pathophysiology of each disease process, and how it possibly interlinks between different organ systems.
  • Takotsubo Syndrome and Inflammatory Bowel Diseases: Does a Link Exist? [Review]
    Dig Dis 2019; :1-7Mirijello A, D'Errico MM, … De Cosmo S
  • CONCLUSIONS: Despite pathophysiological similarities between TTS and IBD in active phase, future studies are needed to confirm this apparently possible association and to assess the presence of a pathophysiological link between these diseases.
  • Head Rules Over the Heart: Cardiac Manifestations of Cerebral Disorders. [Review]
    Indian J Crit Care Med 2019; 23(7):329-335Prasad Hrishi A, Ruby Lionel K, Prathapadas U
  • The Brain-Heart interaction is becoming increasingly important as the underlying pathophysiological mechanisms become better understood. "Neurocardiology" is a new field which explores the pathophysiological interplay of the brain and cardiovascular systems. Brain-heart cross-talk presents as a result of direct stimulation of some areas of the brain, leading to a sympathetic or parasympathetic re…

  • Advancements in the diagnostic workup, prognostic evaluation, and treatment of takotsubo syndrome. [Review]
    Heart Fail Rev 2019Ali M, Rigopoulos AG, … Noutsias M
  • Takotsubo syndrome (TTS) is an acute and mostly reversible cardiomyopathy that mimics an acute coronary syndrome with left ventricular (LV) systolic dysfunction without relevant obstructive coronary artery disease. Its prevalence is probably underestimated and reaches 1.2-2% in patients with acute coronary syndrome undergoing coronary catheterization. Although supraphysiological epinephrine level…
  • Vertebral Artery Dissection and Takotsubo Syndrome Associated with Marijuana Use. [Case Reports]
    Cureus 2019; 11(5):e4785Sanchez-Nadales A, Anampa-Guzmán A
  • Cervical artery dissection is an intimal tear in a cervical artery with the development of intramural hematoma resulting in stenosis, occlusion, or aneurysmal dilation. Takotsubo syndrome (TTS) is characterized by acute heart failure with a distinctive regional left ventricular contraction profile. We presented the case of a 33-year-old male who visited the emergency department due to right-sided…
  • [Takotsubo syndrome and hyperthyroidism: a case report]. [Case Reports]
    An Sist Sanit Navar 2019; 0(0):71769Irigaray Echarri A, Ernaga Lorea A, … Bazal Chacón P
  • Stress cardiomyopathy, or Takotsubo syndrome, is similar to that of an acute coronary syndrome, with electrocardiographic changes and an increase in troponin levels; however, coronary arteriography typically shows no obstructive lesions. One of the characteristic patterns are regional wall motion abnormalities identified by echocardiography. It has been described in association with thyroid disor…
