OBJECTIVE Even though diffuse T wave inversion and prolongation of the QT interval in the surface electrocardiogram (ECG) have been consistently reported in patients with transient stress-induced left ventricular apical ballooning (AB), ventricular repolarization has not yet been systematically investigated in this clinical entity. BACKGROUND AB, an emerging syndrome that mimics acute ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (MI), is characterized by reversible left ventricular wall motion… CONTINUE READING
