Diagnosing stress cardiomyopathy (SCMP) apart from acute coronary syndrome (ACS) is challenging since coronary evaluation is not always feasible in real-world clinical practice. We explored the current practice pattern of coronary evaluation in patients suspected to have SCMP and divulged the distinguishable features of SCMP from ACS.

Takotsubo cardiomyopathy or stress cardiomyopathy is characterized by transient left ventricular apical ballooning in the absence of coronary occlusion. The underlying pathophysiological mechanism is ...
Systemic inflammatory activation can be observed in both Takotsubo cardiomyopathy (TTC) and acute coronary syndrome (ACS). The aim of this study was therefore to compare circulating cytokine levels du...
Takotsubo disease, also called "apical ballooning syndrome", "stress cardiomyopathy" or "broken-heart syndrome" is a potentially lethal entity. It is usually triggered by psychological or physical str...
Cardiovascular complications are a significant problem in systemically treated cancer patients. One such complication is Takotsubo cardiomyopathy, also known as Takotsubo syndrome. It is most frequent...
Takotsubo cardiomyopathy (TC) is a syndrome of transient left ventricular (LV) dysfunction mimicking acute coronary syndrome. Although the mechanisms underlying the occurrence of TC are unknown, sever...
Takotsubo syndrome is a condition which mimics acute myocardial infarction, and is diagnosed in 1.5% to 2.2% of patients referred to hospital with suspected acute coronary syndrome. It is ...
Stress (Takotsubo) cardiomyopathy (SC) is a peculiar form of acute, reversible myocardial dysfunction predominantly affecting the apical and mid left ventricular segments. This was origin...
Takotsubo cardiomyopathy (TC) is a type of non-ischemic cardiomyopathy in which there is a sudden temporary weakening of the myocardium. . In a recent study, women report more sexual dysfu...
Acute stress-induced (Tako-tsubo) cardiomyopathy presents like a heart attack and is triggered by intense emotional or physical stress. Although heart arteries are unobstructed, the risk o...
Acute stress induced (Tako-tsubo) cardiomyopathy (TTC) or broken heart syndrome, a condition typically occurring after acute stress has a death rate similar to heart attacks and is frequen...
A transient left ventricular apical dysfunction or ballooning accompanied by electrocardiographic (ECG) T wave inversions. This abnormality is associated with high levels of CATECHOLAMINES, either administered or endogenously secreted from tumor or during extreme stress.
A piperazine derivative and PLATELET AGGREGATION INHIBITOR that is used to prevent THROMBOSIS in patients with ACUTE CORONARY SYNDROME; UNSTABLE ANGINA and MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION, as well as in those undergoing PERCUTANEOUS CORONARY INTERVENTIONS.
A group of diseases in which the dominant feature is the involvement of the CARDIAC MUSCLE itself. Cardiomyopathies are classified according to their predominant pathophysiological features (DILATED CARDIOMYOPATHY; HYPERTROPHIC CARDIOMYOPATHY; RESTRICTIVE CARDIOMYOPATHY) or their etiological/pathological factors (CARDIOMYOPATHY, ALCOHOLIC; ENDOCARDIAL FIBROELASTOSIS).
A class of traumatic stress disorders that is characterized by the significant dissociative states seen immediately after overwhelming trauma. By definition it cannot last longer than 1 month, if it persists, a diagnosis of post-traumatic stress disorder (STRESS DISORDERS, POST-TRAUMATIC) is more appropriate.
Abnormal balloon- or sac-like dilatation in the wall of CORONARY VESSELS. Most coronary aneurysms are due to CORONARY ATHEROSCLEROSIS, and the rest are due to inflammatory diseases, such as KAWASAKI DISEASE.
Stress is caused by your perception of situations around you and then the reaction of your body to them. The automatic stress response to unexpected events is known as 'fight or flight'. Discovered by Walter Cannon in 1932, it is the release of h...
Cardiology is a specialty of internal medicine. Cardiac electrophysiology : Study of the electrical properties and conduction diseases of the heart. Echocardiography : The use of ultrasound to study the mechanical function/physics of the h...
