Résumé en anglais

Tako-Tsubo cardiomyopathy (TTC) is a reversible cardiomyopathy mimicking acute myocardial infarction characterized by a transient left ventricular (LV) apical ballooning without epicardial coronary artery disease [1]. Most remarkable is the complete reversibility of this cardiomyopathy resolving spontaneously within several weeks [1]. Conduction pathway disorders were rarely associated with TTC. We described two cases of TTC with conduction disorders persisting after improvement of left ventricular wall motion that finally motivated the implantation of pacemakers.
