PMID:  19135735     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Takotsubo cardiomyopathy is characterised by reversible left ventricular apical ballooning and no significant coronary artery stenosis. A new variant, a mid-ventricular pattern of takotsubo cardiomyopathy, has been reported. However, there have been few reports on basal wall akinesia or hypokinesia with preservation of the apical and mid-ventricular wall motion shown at echocardiography and ventriculography. We report the case of a 42-year-old patient who presented with atypical basal type takotsubo cardiomyopathy and recovered fully within 2 weeks.
