Background:In most cases, Takotsubo cardiomyopathy is triggered by emotional or physical stress and is a unique form of reversible cardiomyopathy. Outcomes of the disease and possible complications are still unknown in patients who have to undergo surgery. We report a case of an elderly woman with a hip fracture and stress induced cardiomyopathy who underwent surgery shortly after the onset of the illness.
