These patients were prospectively diagnosed with Apical Ballooning Syndrome at the time of presentation with their acute illness, and consented to participation in a registry. They are residents of Olmsted County, and the surrounding regions for which the Mayo Clinic serves as a tertiary care center. Enrollment in the registry requires satisfaction of standard criteria for the diagnosis of ABS and includes the administration of a standardized questionnaire. Subjects have agreed to participate in yearly follow up questionnaires about their health status.
