Life-threatening factors in heart failure
The word "broken heart" is not just words, but medical reality. Tacotubo syndrome is also called "heart disorder syndrome", which can be life-threatening. Researchers have found that patients are currently at risk for short-term or long-term outcomes.
Most victims suffer
In the early 90's, Takotsubo syndrome (TTS) was described by Japanese physicians Keigo Dote and Hikaru Sato. This disease occurs after a strong psychic stress such as anxiety or heart disease. Many women suffer from menopause. Most victims do not suffer from illness. But ten percent develops a dangerous complication. In the short or long term, patients have a high risk of being exposed.
The reasons are still unclear
The name of Takotubo syndrome was in the form of a traditional, leafy hippopotamus, with a narrow cortex.
At the end of the systole, the left ventricle's own specimen was examined as a medical specialty as a result of cardiac muscle fractures.
The causes of the disease are still unclear and should therefore be based on symptoms.
The loss of loved ones will make you sick
Disease often occurs as a result of severe emotional stress, such as loss of a loved one, called "severe syndrome" ("syndrome disorder").
Also, extreme physical stress such as intimidation at work or surgery, drowning or stroke may cause a Broken Heart Syndrome.
In addition, positive events, such as a wedding or a lottery win, seem to have won Takotsubo's syndrome.
However, in medicine, it has been known that this disease can lead to long-term heart failure and stroke risk.
Disease can be death
Due to the sudden appearance of the disease, frequent severe dysfunction of the heart pumps often causes suspicion of heart attack.
After acute phase, most patients recover for weeks or months.
However, about ten percent of patients suffer from acute phase-related heart attack and life-threatening complications, which suddenly absorb very little blood from the body.
About five percent of patients with cardiogenic shock are hospitalized, according to the University of Zurich (USZ).
USZ researchers have now found that Takotsubo® patients have long-term consequences for cardiogenic shock and for those who suffer.
Which patients develop cardiogenic shock?
In order to study them, scientists could return to the data collected in the InterTac Registry.
This first global Takocubo registry was created in 2011 at the University Cardiac Center to promote research on Takocubo syndrome.
At present more than 40 cardiovascular centers from 20 countries are registered; under his leadership prof. Med. Dr. GMT. NAT. Christian Temple, Interventional Cardiologist and Head of Acne Cardiology Department at USZ.
"Through the study, we know that Takotsubo patients develop cardiogenic shock during the acute phase of the disease and should therefore be intensely controlled," said Templin.
"These patients also show long-term risks and should therefore be constantly monitored," said the expert.
These were less aware of risk factors, and patients without Tacotubbo disease were not diagnosed.
"The diagnosis, treatment, and prognosis of patients have made significant progress in this study" (Ad)
