  • Call a Spade a Spade: Missed Diagnosis of Apical Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy. [Review]
    Am J Med Sci 2019Leaphart D, Waring A, … Fernandes V
  • Apical hypertrophic cardiomyopathy is a variant of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy characterized by apical hypertrophy, deep T-wave inversions in precordial electrocardiogram (EKG) leads, and a ventriculogram shaped like the "Ace of Spades." Patients are often asymptomatic but sometimes present with atypical chest pain, angina, or atrial fibrillation. The deep T-wave inversions on EKG often mimic acu…
  • Takotsubo cardiomyopathy in the setting of complete heart block. [Case Reports]
    Proc (Bayl Univ Med Cent) 2018; 31(4):502-505Afzal A, Watson J, … Assar MD
  • Few cases of coincident takotsubo cardiomyopathy and complete heart block (CHB) have been reported. A 62-year-old woman presented with typical chest pain and was found to have CHB with a left ventricular ejection fraction of 35% and apical ballooning on ventriculogram. The patient was transvenously paced and a permanent biventricular pacemaker was placed when the CHB did not resolve. Repeat echoc…
  • Forme Fruste in Recurring Mid-Ventricular Variant of Takotsubo Cardiomyopathy. [Journal Article]
    Am J Case Rep 2019; 20:385-389Piranavan P, Kaur N, … Hannan J
  • CONCLUSIONS: TC may present in a myriad of clinical forms that must be considered in the evaluation of patients with suspected acute coronary syndromes or cardiomyopathy. Treatment is mainly supportive, and recurrence rates range from 7.7% to 11.4%. To the best of our knowledge, this forme fruste presentation has not been previously reported in recurrent variants of TC.
  • Takotsubo cardiomyopathy triggered by status epilepticus: case report and literature review. [Case Reports]
    BMJ Case Rep 2019; 12(1)Nandal S, Castles A, … van Gaal W
  • Takotsubo cardiomyopathy (TC) is acute stress-induced cardiomyopathy with characteristic transient wall motion abnormalities. TC has a clinical presentation similar to an acute coronary syndrome, including chest pain or dyspnoea, ECG changes and elevated cardiac enzymes. TC often occurs after emotional stress. There are approximately 50 TC cases reported related to seizure activity, and our revie…
  • Takotsubo Cardiomyopathy in a Patient with Preexisting Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy. [Case Reports]
    Cureus 2018; 10(11):e3579Elhosseiny S, Spagnola J, … Bogin M
  • 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…
  • StatPearls: Neuroanatomy, Ventricular System [BOOK]
    StatPearls Publishing: Treasure Island (FL) Shenoy Saraswati Satyanarayan SS Seth G S Med College & KEM Hospital Lui Forshing F CA Northstate Uni, College of Med BOOK
  • The ventricular system of the brain is an interconnected series of cavities filled with cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) that cushions the brain. Though the presence of cerebral ventricles was known since ancient times, its function was obscure. Early scientists believed ventricles to be the site of thought, emotions, reasoning, and memory. Leonardo da Vinci, the famed artist who drew Mona Lisa, perform…
