This is a multicenter, multinational, prospective and retrospective, observational study of patients with Takotsubo cardiomyopathy (TTC).
Data on natural profile (demographical characteristics, clinical phenotype, laboratory values, electrocardiography parameters, echocardiography parameters, coronary angiography parameters, medication) and outcome are systematically collected.
Our aim is to gain a better insight into the clinical profile and pathophysiology of TTC.
|Condition or disease|
Registry is an open-ended study and eligible individuals are assessed at index event and follow-up on their phenotypical characteristics. Furthermore, outcome data are collected (by clinical visits or telephone follow-up).
In addition, participants are given the option to consent to the donation of biosamples for the purposes to identify TTC specific biomarkers and mutations (sub-study on behalf of the registry).
