In summary, this patient's perfusionviability CMR imaging demonstrates a small focal area of apical-inferior wall transmural, > 50% myocardial DHE with corresponding akinesis and fixed-perfusion rest-stress defects, corresponding to RCA territory scar with nonviable myocardium, related to the patient's prior MI.
Takotsubo cardiomyopathy is a condition characterized by a sudden onset of cardiac symptoms along with transient left ventricular apical wall akinesis and ballooning, electrocardiography (EKG) changes with ST elevation or depression, formation of abnormal Q-wave, and/ or elevation of cardiac enzymes in the absence of coronary artery disease.
