Broken Heart Syndrome: Causes and Symptoms

Takotsubo or stress cardiomyopathy are the technical terms for broken heart syndrome, explains Dr. Lauren Frost, Cardiologist with Miami Cardiac & Vascular Institute.
She describes this is a very unique condition in which a woman, always postmenopausal, has a very traumatic event such as car accident or dead of a relative, so she can present a heart attack.
However, the specialist affirms if a broken heart is diagnosed and treated, women can survive the acute episode without having anything major. The prognosis is excellent with good medical care. It�۪s a disease more prevalent in women.
