Takotsubo’s cardiomyopathy is characterized as per Mayo criteria by transient wall motion abnormalities involving the left ventricular apex and mid-ventricle in the absence of obstructive epicardial coronary artery disease and pheochromocytoma or myocarditis as well as new electrocardiographic abnormalities. Recent literature has suggested a variance in segments involved in this stress induced cardiomyopathy. This case illustrates not only classic left apical and mid-ventricular involvement but also a reduction in basal contractility (compared to normal strain numbers by segment) as measured by strain.
