BACKGROUND Although in reversible takotsubo cardiomyopathy (TC), wall motion generally recovers dramatically within a few weeks, there are few data on changes in autonomic function in this condition. AIM To investigate cardiac autonomic function in the acute and chronic phases of TC. METHODS Ten patients with TC (mean age 70.1 +/- 13.7 years) underwent cardiac catheterization on the first hospital day, when left ventricular (LV) ejection fraction (EF) was calculated.
