Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Transient left ventricular apical ballooning or takotsubo syndrome is characterized by transient left ventricular dysfunction, electrocardiographic changes that mimic acute myocardial infarction, and minimal release of myocardial enzymes, with no evidence of obstructive coronary artery disease. Although prognosis and outcome are relatively good, reported complications include intraventricular thrombi and embolic events. We report an extremely rare case of acute myocardial infarction complicating the early in-hospital course of a patient with takotsubo syndrome. © 2013 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
