Abstract

We present a case of takotsubo cardiomyopathy (TTC) with ventricular stand still and atrioventricular block. TTC can mimic ST elevation myocardial infarction and heart failure, but in this case resulted in a severe cardiac conduction disorder and ventricular standstill. This is a recognised but unusual presentation and serves as a lesson to those undertaking anaesthetics to be vigilant for TTC.
