Diffuse ST-elevation following J-wave presentation as an uncommon electrocardiogram pattern of Tako-Tsubo cardiomyopathy.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Tako-Tsubo cardiomyopathy (TTC) is characterized by symptoms, ECG changes with elevated cardiac markers mimicking acute myocardial infarction, left ventricular (LV) wall motion abnormalities in the apical region with preserved function of base, and normal coronary arteries. Usual ECG anomalies heralding TTC are ST-elevation in anterior leads, QT… (More)
