Abstract

Background The increased prevalence of psychiatric illness among patients with takotsubo cardiomyopathy (TC) has been previously described. Objectives We sought to assess the effect of pre-existing psychiatric illness on clinical outcomes following the diagnosis of TC. Methods Adults diagnosed with TC at Vanderbilt University Medical Center between 1999 and 2015 were included in the study. Medical records were retrospectively reviewed to identify any pre-existing mood, anxiety, or schizophrenia-spectrum illness before TC presentation. Multivariable logistic regression was used to test for independent association of pre-existing psychiatric illness with 30-day mortality and recurrent TC; Cox proportional hazard analysis was used to evaluate for association with long-term mortality. Results Among 306 patients diagnosed with TC during the study period, 114 (37%) had a pre-existing psychiatric illness. In all, 43 (14%) and 88 (29%) patients died within 30 days of index diagnosis and as of last medical record review, respectively. Of the 269 who survived their index hospitalization, 19 (7%) had a confirmed recurrent episode of TC. In multivariable analyses, pre-existing psychiatric illness was not associated with increased 30-day (P = 0.320) or long-term (P = 0.621) mortality. Pre-existing psychiatric illness was associated with higher risk of recurrent TC (odds ratio = 7.44, 95% CI: 2.30–24.01, P < 0.001). Conclusions Pre-existing psychiatric illness was associated with an increased risk of recurrent TC. No significant association was noted between pre-existing psychiatric illness and survival.
