Abstract

Myocardial stunning is described as a transient post-ischemic dysfunction of the myocardium after perfusion has been restored. This phenomenon, first described by Braunwald and Kloner in 1982, has been postulated to exist in a variety of clinical situations, including acute myocardial infarction following successful thrombolysis or angioplasty. We describe a patient who developed severe anaphylaxis complicated by transient coronary vasospasm, leading to myocardial dysfunction. The myocardial function recovered slowly even after perfusion was restored to the myocardium. The patient had no biochemical evidence of myocardial damage and had normal coronary anatomy on angiography. Myocardial stunning following vasospasm as a result of anaphylaxis has not been reported.
