Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Takotsubo cardiomyopathy is characterized by transient mid- and apical ventricular dysfunction disguising as acute coronary syndrome but carries a good prognosis. Though spontaneous resolution is common, clinical manifestations may last weeks. We describe a case of quick resolution of left ventricular dysfunction and clinical symptom. We also reviewed the literature regarding timing and possible sources of variation in improvement in ventricular function.
