VARELA U, CECILIA; BOHN R, RICARDO; VARLETA O, PAOLA  e  CONCEPCION C, ROBERTO. Recurrence of stress cardiomyopathy after an earthquake: Report of one case. Rev. méd. Chile [online]. 2011, vol.139, n.1, pp.79-83. ISSN 0034-9887.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0034-98872011000100011.

Stress-induced cardiomyopathy is characterized by transient systolic dysfunction ofthe apical or mid segments ofthe left ventricle that mimics myocardial infarction in the absence of obstructive coronary artery disease. Symptoms recur after a phy-sical or emotional stress. We report a 77 years oíd femóle that in 2004, suffered an episode of stress cardiomyopathy after an intense physical effort. In February 2010, immediately after the earthquake that occurred in Chile, the patient consulted for chestpain, STsegment elevation and enzyme elevation. An echocardiography showed a left ventricular anteroseptal akinesia with an ejection fraction of 35%. Coronary arteriography did not show significant alterations.
