Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Takotsubo cardiomyopathy is an acute reversible clinical condition mimicking an acute myocardial infarction. Although a normal coronary artery tree is frequently detected, the concurrence of coronary artery disease is a common finding in a substantial proportion of patients. We report an unusual case of takotsubo cardiomyopathy in post-menopausal women after emotional stress, occurring after inferior ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction. The possible association between takotsubo cardiomyopathy and coronary artery disease is discussed.
