Takotsubo Cardiomyopathy

Takotsubo Cardiomyopathy, also known as (…) is a type of non-ischemic cardiomyopathy┬áin which there is a sudden temporary weakening of the myocardium┬á(the muscle of the heart).
Because this weakening can be triggered by emotional stress, such as the death of a loved one, a break-up, or constant anxiety, the condition is also known as broken heart syndrome.
