Hypertensive crisis secondary to pheochromocytoma.

We describe a patient with hypoxic respiratory failure requiring extracorporeal membrane oxygenation to stabilize until the pheochromocytoma was discovered and treated. PMID: 28670069 [PubMed - in process]

Conclusion: The results of this randomised controlled trial with assessment of blood pressure and same-day self-reports will provide patients a tool to understand the interplay between blood pressure and lifestyle applicable to primary health care. The self-management support system may be of importance for improved adherence to treatment and persistence to treatment recommendations. PMID: 31814476 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Togha M, Bahrpeyma F, Jafari M, Nasiri A Abstract BACKGROUND: Cervicogenic headache (CeH) is among the common types of headache which has an undesirable influence on the quality of life. The myofascial trigger point (MTrP) within the sternocleidomastoid (SCM) muscle is one of the most important causes of CeH. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to compare the effect of dry needling (DN) and ischemic compression (IC) on the headache symptoms as well as MTrP-related features in subjects with CeH originating from MTrPs of the SCM muscle using a sonographic method. METHODS: A total of 29 female su...

Publication date: Available online 29 August 2019Source: Journal of Cardiology CasesAuthor(s): Takashi Touma, Takafumi Miyara, Yoji TabaAbstractA 33-year-old woman complained of sudden chest pain and intense headache. She was unconscious and underwent defibrillation for ventricular fibrillation in the ambulance. In the emergency room, she was placed on an artificial respirator. Diffuse wall hypokinesis and decreased left ventricular ejection fraction (31%) were identified on transthoracic echocardiography, and an intra-aortic balloon pump was inserted to address the cardiogenic shock. A mass was identified in the right adr...

We report the case of a 66-year-old woman who presented with abdominal pain. Examination revealed a large right adrenal mass, cardiogenic shock, and severe heart failure in the presence of normal coronary arteries. Within days, the patient's hemodynamic status and left ventricular ejection fraction improved markedly. Results of imaging and biochemical tests confirmed the diagnosis of pheochromocytoma-induced takotsubo cardiomyopathy. Medical therapy and right adrenalectomy resolved the patient's heart failure, and she was asymptomatic postoperatively. We recommend awareness of the link between pheochromocytoma and takotsub...

ConclusionPazopanib has activity in Pheo/PGL requiring more study; optimal alpha- and beta-blockade are imperative pre-therapy in patients with secretory tumors, as risk of hypertension and cardiomyopathy are potentially life threatening.

We report the case of a 57-year old patient presenting a voluminous phaeochromocytoma of the left adrenal gland revealed by cardiogenic shock and rescued by peripheral extracorporeal life support device (ECLS). Left surrenalectomy has been performed under protective ECLS during the same surgical procedure. The patient was successfully weaned from ECLS on Day 7 after surgery and myocardial function completely recovered when the patient was discharged from the hospital.

Pheochromocytoma is usually diagnosed in patients with resistant high blood pressure or the classical triad of symptoms including palpitations, sweats and headache. To our knowledge, we describe here the first case of concomitant bifocal complications of pheochromocytoma with a concomitant ischaemic colitis and Takotsubo-like cardiomyopathy.

Abstract: Pheochromocytoma and paraganglioma (PPG) are rare and late-diagnosed catecholamine secreting tumors, which may be associated with unrecognized and/or severe cardiomyopathies. We performed a computer-assisted systematic search of the electronic Medline databases using the MESH terms “myocarditis,” “myocardial infarction,” “Takotsubo,” “stress cardiomyopathy,” “cardiogenic shock”, or “dilated cardiomyopathy,” and “pheochromocytoma” or “paraganglioma” from 1961 to August 2012. All detailed case reports of cardiomyopathy d...
