Takotsubo syndrome (TTS) is an acute reversible form of myocardial dysfunction that is often associated with serious adverse in-hospital complications, including acute heart failure, cardiogenic shock and life-threatening arrythmias. In the absence of randomized clinical trials, its management in the acute phase is based on empirical supportive pharmacological and non-pharmacological measures.In this review article, we aimed at providing an overview of the acute clinical manifestations of patients presenting with TTS, highlighting the predictors of a worse short-term outcome, along with the challenges in therapeutic management of TTS-related complications in the acute care setting.

Abstract

Takotsubo syndrome (TTS) is an acute reversible form of myocardial dysfunction that is often associated with serious adverse in-hospital complications, including acute heart failure, cardiogenic shock and life-threatening arrythmias. In the absence of randomized clinical trials, its management in the acute phase is based on empirical supportive pharmacological and non-pharmacological measures.In this review article, we aimed at providing an overview of the acute clinical manifestations of patients presenting with TTS, highlighting the predictors of a worse short-term outcome, along with the challenges in therapeutic management of TTS-related complications in the acute care setting.
