Recent evidence suggests comparable in‐hospital and long‐term outcomes between takotsubo syndrome (TTS) and acute coronary syndrome. Medical scoring systems are practical tools for decision making and prognostic assessment. However, TTS‐specific scoring systems for risk stratification have not yet been established. Recently, classification based on triggering conditions proved useful in predicting adverse outcomes in TTS (InterTAK Classification).1 Since clinical parameters other than triggering conditions can be associated with adverse outcomes in TTS, such as systolic blood pressure and heart rate, the present study aimed to establish a scoring system combining triggering factors with other important but easily‐ obtainable clinical parameters of daily clinical practice.
