Broken heart syndrome is a condition that predominantly occurs in women and can be triggered by intense emotional or physical stress.

Known as Tako-tsubo, diagnosis can be particularly challenging, because it presents itself like a heart attack. But why does this happen? BHF-funded cardiovascular scientist Dr Dana Dawson will discuss this question, suggest answers and reveal the truth about this mysterious condition.
