Type 1 variant includes patients with normal coronary arteries without predisposing factors for coronary artery disease, in whom the acute release of inflammatory mediators can induce either coronary artery spasm without an increase in cardiac enzymes and troponins or coronary artery spasm progressing to acute myocardial infarction with raised cardiac enzymes and troponins.

Echocardiography, electrocardiograms and serial cardiac enzymes following this acute event were not suggestive of an acute MI.
Electrocardiogram tracings will most likely show ST-segment elevations in conjunction with elevated cardiac enzymes.
She orders electrocardiograms for such patients but does not monitor cardiac enzymes, she said.

He developed and holds the patents on the rapid format immunoassays measuring cardiac enzymes, in particularly Troponin, which aids in the early diagnosis of myocardial infarction and is commercialized worldwide in hospital emergency rooms.

The type I variant includes patients with normal coronary arteries without predisposing factors for coronary artery disease in whom the acute release of inflammatory mediators induce either coronary artery spasm without increase of cardiac enzymes and troponins or coronary artery spasm progressing to acute myocardial infarction with raised cardiac enzymes and troponins as in our case (8, 9).
Takotsubo cardiomyopathy is a condition characterized by a sudden onset of cardiac symptoms along with transient left ventricular apical wall akinesis and ballooning, electrocardiography (EKG) changes with ST elevation or depression, formation of abnormal Q-wave, and/ or elevation of cardiac enzymes in the absence of coronary artery disease.
It is generally characterised by acute onset of chest pain or dyspnoea and abnormalities in cardiac enzymes and electrocardiogram (ECG) in the presence of normal coronary arteries on angiography (1,2).
