BACKGROUND Peculiar asynergy, which consists of hypokinesis or akinesis from the mid portion to the apical area and hyperkinesis of the basal area on contrast left ventriculogram, is rare. Because the end-systolic left ventriculogram looks like a "tako-tsubo," which was used for trapping octopuses in Japan, we proposed the term "tako-tsubo-like left ventricular dysfunction." Our aim was to evaluate its clinical features and causes. METHODS We studied 30 patients with tako-tsubo-like left… CONTINUE READING
