The Mayo criteria (all must be met) for diagnosis of this syndrome include the presence of transient left ventricle apical akinesis or dyskinesis, absence of obstructive coronary disease, new electrocardiographic abnormalities and absence of concurrent conditions such as head trauma, intracranial bleeding, phaeochromocytoma, myocarditis and hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (15).
Cardiac catheterization at that time showed 100% left anterior descending artery and 90% posterior LV artery occlusion, diffuse circumflex disease, "faint" right to left collaterals from the right coronary artery to the left anterior descending artery, severely reduced LV function with anterior akinesis, and an anteroapical aneurysm.
Akinesis of the mid to distal anterior wall of the left ventricle was also noted.
ECHO findings were positive for focal anterior and lateral segmental akinesis with an LVEF of 40% to 44%.
