Keywords: takotsubo; echocardiography; strain myocardium; two‑dimensional speckle‑tracking

DOI: 10.18087/cardio.2017.7.10009

Analysis of diagnostic and prognostic possibilities of echocardiography in patients with Takotsubo syndrome is given in this review. Special characteristics of local wall motion abnormalities of the left ventricle are presented and main variants of transitory derangements of local contractility are described. Changes of parameters of deformation of left and right ventricles in acute period and during follow-up are analyzed in detail. A spectrum of complications of the syndrome in detection of which echocardiography plays the leading role is outlined. The review also contains analysis of prognostically unfavorable states and echocardiographic parameters specific for Takotsubo syndrome.
