Abstract

After induction of anaesthesia for lumbar disc herniation surgery, an ASA-1, 39-year-old woman presented an acute heart failure. A persistent hypotension with tachycardia was observed after a brief hypertension peak during orotracheal intubation. After electrocardiogram, echocardiogram and biologic dosages, the diagnosis seems to be coronary ischemia. Coronarography was normal; takotsubo syndrome diagnosis was made with typical ventriculographic aspect. Evolution at two days and one month was favorable.
