Abstract

Takotsubo cardiomyopathy is a reversible left ventricular systolic dysfunction which mimics acute myocardial infarction. The prognosis is generally favorable with improvemenet of left ventricular function in a few weeks. However, serious complications, such as acute mitral regurgitation, dysfunction of the right ventricular, left ventricular outflow tract obstruction, left ventricular thrombus, acute heart failure, cardiogenic shock can occur which can even fatal. It is therefore extremely important to determine easy and quickly accessible factors that affect the prognosis.
