International Takotsubo Registry (InterTAK Registry) (InterTAK)
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.
|Study Design:||Observational Model: Cohort|
|Official Title:||International Multicenter Registry on Takotsubo Cardiomyopathy|
- Natural history of TTC [ Time Frame: 10 years ]To determine the natural history of Takotsubo cardiomyopathy.
- Cardiovascular complications, recurrence of TTC and all cause mortality [ Time Frame: at hospitalizsation, short term (1 year) and long term (10 years) ]Patients will be assessed for cardiovascular complications during hospitalisation and at follow-up (up to 10 years)
|Study Start Date:||January 2011|
|Estimated Study Completion Date:||December 2020|
|Estimated Primary Completion Date:||October 2014 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
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).
