Abstract

We are reporting a case of Tako tsubo cardiomyopathy (transient left ventricular apical ballooning) in the Western population identified by a perfusion echocardiogram that demonstrated perfusion defect at baseline in the apical and adjacent walls that was incongruous to the wall-motion abnormality. The perfusion defect improved within 72 hours on a repeated study indicating that microvasculature disruption is a key feature of this enigmatic cardiomyopathy.
