We present the case of a young man with “noncardiac” chest pain, subsequently diagnosed as Wellens' syndrome. We report the early changes in left ventricular global longitudinal strain imaging findings in these patients despite preserved ejection fraction, and review the features associated with this stereotypical cardiac condition. The patient underwent a successful percutaneous coronary intervention.
