Transient apical thickening following apical ballooning syndrome: a case series
Abudiab MM, Wilansky S, Lester SJ, Yousefzai R, Tyler R, Tajik AJ. Transient Apical Thickening Following Apical Ballooning Syndrome: A Case Series. Echocardiography. 2015;32(11):1723-7.
The authors describe transient apical thickening mimicking apical hypertrophic cardiomyopathy following apical ballooning syndrome. These findings are observed on multimodality cardiac imaging and appear to constitute a novel entity. Possible pathophysiologic mechanisms are explored.
