Flow chart of the study. ACS: acute coronary syndrome; CAD: coronary artery disease; TTC: Tako-Tsubo cardiomyopathy.

Figure 2 : 

Echocardiographic apical four-chamber view. Tako-Tsubo cardiomyopathy assessed by conventional (A and C) and contrast (B and D) echocardiography. A and C were performed in diastole and B and D in systole. The white arrows indicate difficulties in assessing apical and lateral wall motion using conventional echocardiography, whereas the left ventricle was well-visualized by contrast agent. LA: left atrium; LV: left ventricle.

Figure 3 : 

Echocardiographic apical two-chamber view. In the same patient as in Fig. 2, Tako-Tsubo cardiomyopathy assessed by conventional (A and C) and contrast (B and D) echocardiography. The white arrows indicate difficulties in assessing apical and anterior wall motion using conventional echocardiography, whereas the left ventricle was well-visualized by contrast agent. LA: left atrium; LV: left ventricle.
