Abstract
Stress-induced cardiomyopathy or Takotsubo cardiomyopathy is a recently described clinical entity which is associated with a chest pain occurring during a stress, an abnormal ECG and/or an increase in the troponin blood level and a transient left ventricular dysfunction. Transient left ventricular dysfunction generally involves the midsection and the apex of the heart with an akinesis. We reported a case of a 55-year-old female patient who developed a stress-induced cardiomyopathy after local epinephrine use during ophthalmologic surgery.
Key Words: Epinephrine; Stress-induced cardiomyopathy; Takotsubo cardiomyopathy
