Women's hearts break more easily?
Women's hearts break more easily? Men are said to be stronger than women, whether we discuss physical strengths or balancing emotional situations. Same has now been proven by a study which has confirmed that a woman's heart breaks more easily as compared to a man's.

The findings of the study have highlighted that women are emotionally weaker than men because they are seven to nine times more likely to suffer broken heart syndrome or a heart disorder on facing any sudden or prolonged stress such as an emotional breakup or death.
Moreover, their sudden encounter with any tough situation can also cause overwhelming heart failure or heart attack-like symptoms in them but most of the times, patients recover with no lasting damage, concludes the first nationwide American study.

The severely attacking situation to a woman is her husband's death, said Dr. Mariell Jessup, a University of Pennsylvania heart failure specialist who has treated many such cases.

Broken heart syndrome was first recognized by Japanese doctors in around 1990s and they named the condition as Takotsubo cardiomyopathy. They suggested in their theories that the syndrome occur when a big shock (could be positive or negative) triggers a rush of adrenaline and other stress hormones in the body, resulting which, the heart's main pumping chamber blows to balloon suddenly and stop working. Though majority of victims recover within weeks, some rare cases becomes fatal.

Dr. Abhishek Deshmukh of the University of Arkansas had treated some of these cases. He did his first large study of the problem and reported the results of same on Wednesday at an American Heart Association conference in Florida stating that women are 7.5 times more likely to suffer the syndrome than men, though the reason behind same is still unclear.
