Tako Tsubo syndrome (TTS) is characterized by the occurrence in the context of mental or physical stress, a clinical and ECG of acute myocardial infarction without significant coronary artery stenosis, accompanied by a disorder Acute, reversible left ventricular who takes on a characteristic apical ballonnisation evoking the image of a Japanese octopus trap called Tako (octopus) tsubo (jar). Pathophysiology of unknown changes immediate life-threatening prognosis is often good in the longer term.
