ABSTRACT
The article reports on the results of the real-time three dimensional echocardiography (Rt-3DE) performed on a 77-year-old woman with Tako-tsubo cardiomyopathy. The echocardiography examination showed an incomplete right-bundle branch and elevation of the ST-segment. It is indicated that the Rt-3DE allows a rapid and comprehensive analysis of the pattern of wall motion abnormalities in Tako-tsubo cardiomyopathy and offers a precise information on the volume and shape of the left ventricle.
