Takotsubo cardiomyopathy (broken heart syndrome)

Specialty of Cardiology

Takotsubo cardiomyopathy, also known as Takotsubo syndrome or broken heart syndrome, is a condition where the muscular sections of the heart temporarily weaken due to emotional stress. This stress can be because of traumatic events, death of a loved one, or a relationship break-up, and can cause chest pain and shortness of breath, and is often misdiagnosed as a heart attack.
