Cardiogenic shock (CS) due to Takotsubo cardiomyopathy (TCM) is often managed with cautious fluid administration and inotropic support; however, the co-existence of a left ventricular outflow tract obstruction (LVOTO) can complicate this management approach. This report describes a case of CS due to TCM and LVOTO. It was successfully managed with the Impella 2.5. (Level of Difficulty: Intermediate.)
