Takotsubo cardiomyopathy - A new variant and widening disease spectrum

Academic Article


  • Classic takotsubo cardiomyopathy had left ventricular apical ballooning. Variants with mid-ventricular ballooning without involvement of the apex have been described. We describe a new variant of takotsubo cardiomyopathy where apical contraction was preserved while the rest of the ventricle was dyskinetic. © 2007 Elsevier Ireland Ltd. All rights reserved.
