Tako-tsubo cardiomyopathy is a syndrome characterised by transient ventricular dysfunction most commonly involving the left ventricle. Complications include congestive heart failure, hypotension and intracardiac thrombus formation predisposing to thromboembolic events. Right ventricular involvement may also occur but is usually less marked, with complications of right ventricular dysfunction not commonly seen.
