This review was performed to investigate the association between treatment with dialysis and Takotsubo syndrome in patients with end-stage renal disease. We systematically explored the PubMed database using the search terms "Takotsubo cardiomyopathy" and/or "stress-induced cardiomyopathy" and/or "Takotsubo syndrome" in combination with "dialysis" and "uremia." Of 3630 articles found, 8 articles reporting 10 cases were selected for analysis. Most patients were women, and their age ranged from 51 to 84 years. Diabetes mellitus and hypertension were diagnosed in 40% of patients, and glomerular disease was diagnosed in 30%. One only patient was treated with peritoneal dialysis; all others were treated with hemodialysis. The outcome was unfavorable in only one patient. An association between Takotsubo syndrome and dialysis is uncommon, but not negligible, and comorbidities play a major role in determining the clinical outcome.

Abstract

This review was performed to investigate the association between treatment with dialysis and Takotsubo syndrome in patients with end-stage renal disease. We systematically explored the PubMed database using the search terms "Takotsubo cardiomyopathy" and/or "stress-induced cardiomyopathy" and/or "Takotsubo syndrome" in combination with "dialysis" and "uremia." Of 3630 articles found, 8 articles reporting 10 cases were selected for analysis. Most patients were women, and their age ranged from 51 to 84 years. Diabetes mellitus and hypertension were diagnosed in 40% of patients, and glomerular disease was diagnosed in 30%. One only patient was treated with peritoneal dialysis; all others were treated with hemodialysis. The outcome was unfavorable in only one patient. An association between Takotsubo syndrome and dialysis is uncommon, but not negligible, and comorbidities play a major role in determining the clinical outcome.
