The Canadian SIC Survey – Management of Stress-Induced Cardiomyopathy

Takotsubo Syndrome or Stress-Induced Cardiomyopathy (SIC) is a condition characterized by left ventricular dysfunction in the absence of occlusive coronary artery disease (CAD), predominantly affecting women. Previously believed to be a benign condition, contemporary studies report increased rates of complications ranging from cardiogenic shock and thromboembolism to long-term mortality exceeding that of STEMI. To date, there are no randomized control trials or established guidelines to direct therapeutic strategies in the acute stage or to prevent recurrence.

As part of a cardiology resident-led research initiative, we are seeking your participation to better understand the clinical practice variations for the management of Stress-Induced Cardiomyopathy within Canada.

Your feedback will be collected through an online survey which will ask you a series of questions and should take approximately 5 minutes to complete.

Your participation in this survey study is completely voluntary.   You are not required to provide any personal information such as your name, address (except for province) or telephone number. The survey system will not record your e-mail address or IP (Internet protocol) address.
