Dear Editor,

We read with interest the comments of John Madias [1] regarding our case report "Postoperative Takotsubo cardiomyopathy" [2] and appreciate his suggestions. Coronary angiography was performed since we were unsure of the diagnosis. Our institutional protocol is to perform a primary coronary intervention in case a blocked coronary artery is discovered on angiography. We did stabilize the patient prior to coronary angiography. Since the patient showed improved hemodynamics with inotropes and vasopressors intra-aortic balloon pump was not inserted. The electrocardiography leads 1, 2, and 3 also showed attenuation in QRS voltage.
