NOGAL SAEZ, F. Del et al. Tako-tsubo syndrome. Transient left ventricular dyskinesia: Presentation of our casuistics. Med. Intensiva [online]. 2011, vol.35, n.5, pp.307-311. ISSN 0210-5691.

This syndrome was described in 1990. It is characterized by chest pain that simulates an acute coronary syndrome (ACS), with alterations in the ECG, but with normal coronary arteries. We present 16 patients admitted in our ICU, who met the criteria of transient left ventricular dysfunction syndrome (TLVDS). All but 1 patient were women, with age in general higher than 55 years. Chest pain was detected in the 75% of them. A total of 43% had emotional stress as 56% had an elevation of the ST segment, essentially anterolateral. The increase of the biomarkers was slight-to-moderate, with the exception of one patient in whom it was especially high. All of them had undergone a coronary arteriogram and ventriculography, and either septal or anterolateral dyskinesia had been detected, with normal ejection fraction. In 75% of the cases the dyskinesia had disappeared between 4 days to 6 weeks.
