AIMS To assess left ventricular (LV) twist mechanics in patients with Tako-tsubo cardiomyopathy (TTC). METHODS AND RESULTS Two-dimensional strain and LV twist by speckle-tracking echocardiography was performed in 17 consecutive patients with typical TTC according to the Mayo clinic criteria [78 ± 8 years, 88% women, and mean left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) 45 ± 10%], at the acute phase (within 24 h after admission) and after recovery (1 month later). Seventeen control (C) patients… CONTINUE READING
