This consensus paper is the result of a multinational effort aiming to summarize the current state of the art on TTS. Several novel and unique sections are emphasized in this document, including the current state of the art on genetics of takotsubo syndrome, microRNAs (miRs), racial differences, role of cardiac spectroscopy and intracoronary imaging, as well as mechanical circulatory support. New structured algorithms are also proposed to aid clinicians in the decision-making process as well as future directions for research given the current lack of evidence-based medical approaches.Abstract: Copyright (c) 2018 Elsevier Inc.
