It features transient myocardial dysfunction characterised by a typical contractile abnormality consisting of extensive left ventricular circumferential dyskinesia or akinesia with a hyperkinetic apex.

We describe a patient who received an inadvertent bolus of noradrenaline and developed significant… CONTINUE READING
