Abstract

Endo-ventricular thrombosis represents a possible clinical complication of stress(takotsubo)-cardiomyopathy (SC). Depressed ventricular systolic ventricular function, localized left ventricular (LV) dyskinesis, but also an increased pro-thrombotic state induced by catecholamine surge may facilitate the occurrence of endovascular thrombosis in SC. SC, however, may also present as right ventricular (RV) dysfunction or even as biventricular ballooning. Ventricular thrombosis may therefore theoretically occur in either ventricles or both. We report the case of an 88-year old woman, with vascular dementia and depression, admitted for abdominal pain, diarrhea, and rectal bleeding. Unexpectedly, electrocardiogram showed induced QT-prolongation with diffuse negative T-waves, while echocardiogram severe LV dysfunction (ejection fraction 35%), but also RV dysfunction and biventricular thrombosis. The diagnosis was therefore biventricular SC complicated by biventricular thrombosis; LV recovered after 10 days. When SC presents with a biventricular involvement, a careful assessment of either ventricular cavities should be therefore recommended to exclude the presence of (bi)ventricular thrombosis. It remains unresolved whether biventricular SC may represent a condition at higher risk of ventricular thrombosis.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 7. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 19 June 2019.
All research outputs
#2,199,555
of 13,526,991 outputs
Outputs from Journal of Thrombosis and Thrombolysis
#58
of 562 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#60,858
of 269,649 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Journal of Thrombosis and Thrombolysis
#2
of 11 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 13,526,991 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done well and is in the 82nd percentile: it's in the top 25% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 562 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 4.1. This one has done well, scoring higher than 89% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 269,649 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has done well, scoring higher than 76% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 11 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done well, scoring higher than 81% of its contemporaries.
