Transient mid-ventricular ballooning cardiomyopathy: a new entity of Takotsubo cardiomyopathy.

Abstract

We present a case of a 64-year-old man with transient mid-ventricular ballooning cardiomyopathy. Left ventriculography showed morphological differences with ballooning around the whole mid-portion of the left ventricle, although precipitating factors and clinical courses were similar to Takotsubo cardiomyopathy. We suspect that transient mid-ventricular ballooning cardiomyopathy is a new pathological entity in Takotsubo cardiomyopathy.
