Takotsubo cardiomyopathy, also known as ‘Broken Heart Syndrome’, is a form of acute heart failure, featured by a reversible impairment in cardiac contractility. About 20% of patients during hospitalization experience complications including cardiogenic shock, stroke, left ventricular thrombosis or death. Ventricular rupture has already been reported in Takotsubo cardiomyopathy in patients with typical apical ballooning pattern. We report one of the first cases of a midventricular ballooning Takotsubo cardiomyopathy in a 57-year-old woman complicated by ventricular septal rupture, successfully repaired with a surgical interrupted suture technique.
