Abstract

We report a case that shows vasospasm to be one of the mechanisms responsible for left ventricular ballooning syndrome. Our case suggests that identical ventriculographic findings in patients with tako-tsubo syndrome and those with coronary vasospasm of a long left anterior descending artery coronary artery may be due to a common etiology.
