Stress Cardiomyopathy/ Takotsubo Cardiomyopathy - What it is

Stress cardiomyopathy (also known as takotsubo cardiomyopathy or ‘broken heart’ syndrome) is brought on by stressful life events such as the death of a loved one or losing a job. The heart does not contract properly and becomes very weak. Its symptoms can mimic a heart attack. It is transient (temporary) and patients’ symptoms invariably improve over a period of time.
