Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A 59-year-old woman with stroke and thromboembolic aortoiliac disease in the setting of profound stress was found to have severe left ventricular (LV) systolic dysfunction and large mobile clot on focused cardiac ultrasonography (FCU). Marked recovery of LV function and thrombus resolution within 4 days suggested resolving Takotsubo cardiomyopathy. The role of FCU in early diagnosis and treatment is outlined here.
