Takotsubo cardiomyopathy (TCM) is a reversible form of non-ischemic cardiomyopathy. Patients typically present with symptoms of acute coronary syndrome including chest pain, shortness of breath, elevated cardiac biomarkers and ST elevation. As a result, patients are emergently taken to the coronary catheterization lab for angiography of the coronary arteries.
