Abstract

Midventricular ballooning syndrome, an atypical variant of takotsubo cardiomyopathy (TCM), is characterized by transient wall motion abnormalities of the midsegment of the left ventricle with apical sparing. In contrast to the typical form of TCM, apical contractility is preserved and may even be hyperkinetic in midventricular TCM. We present a case of atypical TCM in an 86-year-old woman who had chest pain while accompanying her husband in the emergency department as he was evaluated for chest pain.
