Over the years, Takotsubo Cardiomyopathy (TCMP) has become increasingly apparent, now comprising a significant portion of patients presenting with suspected acute coronary syndrome. The most common presentation of TCMP is ST segment elevation on EKG, troponin elevation, and apical ballooning in the absence of significant coronary artery disease as seen via cardiac catheterization. Although this is the most common presentation, it is important to highlight the less common variants of TCMP. In this article, we present a case series of patients presenting with the different variants of TCMP, followed by a literature review.
