Summary– Takotsubo cardiomyopathy (TTC), also known as left ventricular apical ballooning syndrome or stress cardiomyopathy, is characterized by transient left ventricular systolic dysfunction and the absence of obstructive lesion in the epicardial coronary arteries. The most common presentation is acute substernal chest pain, although occasionally dyspnea and syncope, and rarely shock with ST-segment elevation and elevated cardiac biomarkers have been observed. Inverted (reverse) TTC is a rare pattern characterized hypokinesis of the basal and midventricular segments. Presently described was case of a 27-year-old woman with ventricular fibrillation following endoscopic nasal sinus surgery.

Keywords: Inverted Takotsubo cardiomyopathy, sinus surgery, ventricular fibrillation.
