PMID:  18755755     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A 44-year-old female undergoing radiofrequency ablation in the right ventricular outflow tract for symptomatic, frequent premature ventricular contractions developed stress cardiomyopathy (Tako-Tsubo). Stress cardiomyopathy was probably due to hyperadrenergic state induced by the procedure itself, dobutamine infusion, sympathetic nerve stimulation at the ablation site, and parasympathetic withdrawal with atropine administration.
