    In-hospital heart failure in patients with Takotsubo cardiomyopathy due to coronary artery disease: An artificial intelligence and optical coherence tomography study

    Background: Takotsubo syndrome (TTS) is often associated with symptoms of heart failure (HF) during the acute phase of the disease. 3-dimensional optical coherence tomography (OCT) may be used to assess the extent of angiographically silent underlying coronary artery disease (CAD). This study aims to use an artificial intelligence algorithm to analyze OCT findings and to determine whether the presence of pre-existing CAD predisposes TTS patients to present HF at admission. Methods: This is an observational and retrospective study that enrolled TTS patients who underwent coronary angiography and OCT examination of left anterior descending (LAD) coronary artery. Plaque characterization was automatically ...
