Abstract

Recent studies have investigated the possibility of a temporal organization of onset of Tako-Tsubo cardiomyopathy (TTC). A computer-assisted search of the literature (from 2000 to January 2010) was done. Criteria for publication inclusion were: a) reporting of original data, b) inclusion of at least 5 or more cases, c) adherence to the requested diagnostic criteria for TTC. A particular attention was given to studies including in their purposes the time of occurrence of events. Ouf of the 43 studies found, 7 addressed this topic. A circadian (morning) and a seasonal (summer) higher frequency of events was found. Moreover, one study showed a Monday preference. Stress and catecholamines, according also to their temporal organization, might play a role.
