Takotsubo cardiomyopathy is an acute cardiac syndrome induced by stress
Takotsubo cardiomyopathy (TTC) is an acute cardiac syndrome, characterized by transient left ventricular dysfunction often following a stressful event in post-menopausal women. Symptoms are indistinguishable from myocardial infarction. However, TTC patients do not have a culprit lesion on acute angiography, and regional akinesia is not limited to a single vascular territory. As opposed to other cardiomyopathies TTC is completely reversible, albeit with a 5% mortality rate as well as 10% re-occurrence rate. This article summarizes the current knowledge about aetiology, diagnostics and treatment.
