Abstract: Background: Stress-induced cardiomyopathy (SIC) is an acute cardiac condition with akinesia in the left ventricle (LV) that can be severe. A stress-trigger, physical or emotional, is usually identified preceding onset of symptoms and catecholamine overstimulation is involved in the pathogenesis of SIC. The akinesia seen in SIC is reversible and the short term prognosis is therefore considered to be very good. However, recent data suggest that the long term prognosis is equivalent to patients suf... more
