Abstract

Takotsubo cardiomyopathy (TTC) is an acute cardiac condition characterized by transient left ventricular dysfunction with wall motion abnormalities, most commonly in the form of apical ballooning. Despite being considered as a generally benign condition, many studies have emphasized potentially sinister outcomes associated with TTC. In this article, we review the most recent results of the International Takotsubo Registry, which investigated the clinical features, prognostic predictors, and outcomes of 1750 patients.
