AIMS This study sought to characterize global and regional systolic function in Takotsubo cardiomyopathy (TC) using two-dimensional (2D) strain imaging. METHODS AND RESULTS Twelve consecutive patients (11 women, 1 man) underwent 2D echocardiography on admission and on early follow-up (34 +/- 16 days).

AIMS This study sought to characterize global and regional right ventricular (RV) myocardial function in patients with Takotsubo cardiomyopathy (TC) using 2D strain imaging. METHODS We compared various parameters of RV and left ventricular (LV) systolic function between 2 groups of consecutive patients with TC at initial presentation and upon follow-up.(More)
BACKGROUND Several acute complications related to takotsubo cardiomyopathy (TTC) have been documented recently. However, the incidence and clinical significance of acute thromboembolic events in TTC is not well established. METHODS A detailed investigation of the clinical characteristics and in-hospital complications of 114 consecutive patients diagnosed(More)
BACKGROUND Recurrence of takotsubo cardiomyopathy (TTC) is a well-known complication. However, current literature lists only a few isolated cases. We aimed to determine the incidence and clinical significance of recurrent TTC. METHODS & RESULTS Our institutional database constituted a collective of 114 patients diagnosed with TTC since 2003.
