Felipe Titto is diagnosed with myopicarditis

In the last domino (22), the actor Felipe Titto entered the Hospital São Luiz, in São Paulo, with complaints of severe chest pains and tingling in the left arm. The suspicion was of a heart attack, but today (23) he was diagnosed with myopericarditis (viral infection in the myocardium) and has been discharged.

"Myopericarditis is caused by some types of virus that are attracted to the muscles of the heart. It may appear about two weeks after the patient experiences some stronger viral infection, "says cardiologist Roberto Cury of Lavoisier Medicina Diagnóstica. In addition, since many people do not mention that they have had any recent viral infection, this further delays the diagnosis, causing the patient to even be discharged before the patient is discharged. identification of the problem. "When you know there was a viral infection, you have to take that into account for the diagnosis," says Cury.

Symptoms, such as acute chest pain, can also be confused with a heart attack. Therefore, the diagnosis is delayed a bit, because first of all, physicians need to rule out the possibility of a heart attack and to ensure that the heart structure is preserved.

Electrocardiogram, one of the main tests to identify the infarction, is not to accurately determine myopericarditis. "Only cardiac resonance can characterize the scar in the heart muscle, indicating infarction or myopericarditis," the cardiologist warns.

Myopericarditis may also present with fever, followed by chest pain. There is also the version caused by bacteria, however, it is much rarer to happen. "Normally, myocarditis is usually mild, without affecting the function of the heart. However, there are cases of fuminante myopericarditis, which cause severe heart failure," the cardiologist warns. The treatment, in general, is simple and made with medication to help the heart recover faster.
