Bina Ahmed, Mark A Creager
Although coronary obstruction due to atherosclerosis is the most common cause of myocardial ischemia, a significant proportion of patients have myocardial ischemia in the absence of obstructive epicardial coronary artery disease (CAD). This finding is more common among women and alternative causes can mediate myocardial ischemia. Abnormalities in vascular structure, alterations in coronary vasomotion and dysfunction of the coronary microcirculation can all cause ischemia in the absence of obstructive CAD due to atherosclerosis...

BACKGROUND: The bioresorbable vascular scaffold (BRS) technology constitutes the new revolution of the coronary artery disease interventional treatment. Currently, three distinct types of BRSs are available but only one, the Absorb BVS, was on the market in 2013 when the Regional Commission for Medical Devices and the Cardiology and Cardiac Surgery Commission of the Emilia-Romagna Region drew up a technical and scientific essay to provide guidance for the introduction of BRS in public and affiliated health facilities...

BACKGROUND: Cardiac emergencies during pregnancy are rare but have significant associated morbidity and mortality when they do occur. The emergency physician must not only be aware of potentially life-threatening conditions in the pregnant woman, but also know the emergent management and treatment of these conditions to avoid worsening of the underlying condition. Pregnancy-related spontaneous coronary artery dissection has been described in the cardiology literature, but is not well-known in emergency medicine literature...

Spontaneous Coronary Artery Dissection (SCAD) is a non-traumatic and non-iatrogenic separation of the coronary arterial wall. Although uncommon, it should be suspected in any young patient with acute myocardial infarction especially without risk factor of cardiovascular disease. Early coronary angiography is essential in the diagnosis of SCAD. Fibromuscular dysplasia is a rare cause of SCAD, particularly encountered in young women. This is a nonatherosclerotic and noninflammatory vascular disease. Fibromuscular dysplasia may cause stenosis, aneurysm, dissection and / or occlusion of arteries...

Left ventricular thrombus is a frequent complication after myocardial infarction and is associated with high risk for arterial embolic complications. In addition to oral anticoagulation, surgical thrombectomy may be a promising treatment for large and mobile thrombus. We report the rare case of a 27-year-old patient who presented with a giant left ventricular thrombus after expanded and silent myocardial infarction caused by spontaneous dissection of the left anterior descending coronary artery. As conservative therapy by oral anticoagulation had failed, the thrombus was removed by performing left ventriculotomy...

AIMS: Given the different pathogenesis, use of drug eluting stent (DES) in patients with Spontaneous Coronary Artery Dissection SCAD may delay the healing of the dissected vessel. Aim of our study was to compare the safety and the efficacy of DES vs. bare metal stent (BMS) in a cohort of patients who underwent stenting for SCAD. METHODS AND RESULTS: Consecutive patients with SCAD between January 1995 and August 2014 were retrospectively identified in 12 centers and included...

BACKGROUND: Because of the rarity of this condition, information on pregnancy-associated spontaneous coronary artery dissection is limited. We reviewed a large number of contemporary pregnancy-associated spontaneous coronary artery dissection cases in an attempt to define the clinical characteristics and provide management recommendations. METHODS AND RESULTS: A literature search for cases of pregnancy-associated spontaneous coronary artery dissection reported between 2000 and 2015 included 120 cases; 75% presented with ST-segment-elevation myocardial infarction, and 80% had anterior myocardial infarction...

Gender medicine is concerned with the question of why diseases are expressed differently in the genders. It takes differences between men and women into account, which are often neglected by traditional medicine. Sex differences can also be found in cardiovascular diseases; therefore, risk factors for cardiovascular diseases have a different significance depending on the sex. Diabetic diseases tend to promote the occurrence of coronary heart disease (CHD) more strongly in women than in men. Myocardial infarctions affect women 10 years later than men and young women are often treated too late, possibly because myocardial infarction is consider to be a "male disease"...

Subrata Kar, Richard R Webel
Spontaneous coronary artery pseudoaneurysm (PSA, false aneurysm) is an extremely rare occurrence with the precise incidence unknown. It is defined as an outwardly bulging monolayer or double layer within the coronary artery that lacks all 3 layers (intima, media, and adventitia) of the arterial wall. Coronary PSA commonly occurs from arterial dissection or perforation induced by catheter intervention, infection, pregnancy, or trauma. Traumatic dissection or perforation of the coronary artery after a percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) remains the most common cause...

BACKGROUND: Spontaneous coronary artery dissection (SCAD) is an infrequent but important cause of myocardial infarction (MI) especially in younger women. However, the clinical presentation and the acuity of symptoms prompting invasive management in SCAD patients have not been described. Understanding these presenting features may improve SCAD diagnosis and management. METHODS: We reviewed SCAD patients who were prospectively followed at the Vancouver General Hospital SCAD Clinic...

BACKGROUND: Spontaneous healing of spontaneous coronary artery dissection (SCAD) and left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) recovery is frequently observed clinically. However, LVEF on presentation and follow-up imaging has not been described. HYPOTHESIS: We hypothesize that LV dysfunction improves at follow-up after initial SCAD presentation. METHODS: We included patients with nonatherosclerotic SCAD prospectively followed at Vancouver General Hospital, who had baseline assessment of LVEF and wall-motion abnormality (WMA) during their index presentation...
