059 – Takotsubo cardiomyopathy

Hi everyone,

Once again I am joined by Graeme where we discuss an interesting obstetric case of Takotsubo cardiomyopathy that we were involved with and then do a deep dive into this fascinating condition!

We are not cardiologists or experts in this condition by any means and all of our statistics and facts that we quote come directly from the recent 2018 international consensus documents from the European Heart Journal which I have referenced below.

Finally we don’t get a lot of feedback here on the podcast :(, if anyone knows any good jokes or has suggestions for future topics they would like us to explore please let us know!
