BACKGROUND: Spontaneous coronary artery dissection (SCAD) is a nonatherosclerotic but a rare and extremely dangerous clinical entity, it has a high prevalence in young female population with acute myocardial infarction (AMI). The previous reports were restricted to other countries' population, but rare in China. Hence, this study aimed to focus on the characteristics of SCAD as a cause of young female AMI population in Jiangsu, China. METHODS: This study enrolled young female AMI patients aged ≤50 years who underwent coronary angiography (CAG) and intracoronary imaging in our center between January 2013 and December 2016...

Spontaneous coronary artery dissection (SCAD) is an uncommon disease. We report the case of a 50 year-old woman with a past medical history of aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage, presenting with acute chest pain and diffuse ST segment elevation on ECG. Coronary angiogram revealed a SCAD of the left anterior descending coronary artery. The association between cerebral aneurysms and SCAD should trigger providers concern for fibromuscular dysplasia. We hereby report on a rare and atypical case involving the relationship between fibromuscular dysplasia and SCAD...

Nonatherosclerotic spontaneous coronary artery dissection (NA-SCAD) is an uncommon cause of myocardial infarction. It most commonly affects females in the perimenopausal age. NA-SCAD has been associated with many predisposing factors including pregnancy and hormonal therapy for both contraception and ovulation induction. The presented case is a previously healthy 41-year-old woman diagnosed with inferior ST-elevation myocardial infarction due to right descending coronary artery dissection associated with recent use of clomiphene monotherapy for ovulation induction (a previously fertile woman), which was not previously reported...

We report the case of a myocardial infarction in the post-partum period due to a spontaneous coronary artery dissection. The role of intracoronary imaging was critical: OCT imaging led us to formulate the right diagnosis.OCT imaging revealed a multiple coronary artery dissection in the left main non-detectable on angiography and in the circumflex, with evidence of coronary hematoma in the circumflex and left anterior descending. Beside dissection, OCT showed evidence of a thrombus near the coronary tear in the left main...

A 49-year-old man complained of sudden upper abdominal pain but was not given a definitive diagnosis. The day after he was discharged, he noticed left chest pain. An in-depth electrocardiogram indicated acute myocardial infarction, and emergent coronary angiography revealed 99% stenosis of his left coronary artery. An intravascular ultrasound revealed spontaneous coronary artery dissection (SCAD), and the lesion was successfully stented. In an atherosclerosis screening, superior mesenteric artery dissection (SMAD) was confirmed, after which the lesion was successfully stented...

REVIEW
Regina Lee, Itsik Ben-Dor
Spontaneous coronary artery dissection (SCAD) is becoming widely recognized as an important cause of myocardial infarction, particularly in younger women. Tendency toward conservative management has been primarily based on observational data. Intervention is recommended when coronary blood flow is compromised and high risk features such as left main involvement, ongoing ischemia, or hemodynamic or electrical instability are present. Unlike the atherosclerotic process where the superiority of stenting compared with plain old balloon angioplasty has been established in the acute setting, randomized studies for revascularization strategies for spontaneous coronary dissection are currently lacking...

Acute aortic dissection is a rare but devastating complication during cardiac catheterization. We present the case of an elderly female who incurred a Stanford Type A/DeBakey Type I acute aortic dissection extending into the arch vessels and descending aorta likely occurring during right coronary artery engagement for angioplasty. The patient was treated successfully by immediately sealing the entrance of the dissection via the placement of a stent and anti-impulse therapy. Follow-up computed tomography scan showed complete resolution of the dissection within one month...

Iatrogenic aortic dissection (IAD) is a rare complication of percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI). There are no clear guidelines for IAD management, and limited data are available. Registry data and case series combined with extrapolations from our experience with spontaneous Type-A dissections suggest that very limited dissections are often managed conservatively with coronary stenting of the entry tear when possible, while more extensive dissections are managed surgically. We present a case report of a 50-year-old woman who underwent PCI for an ST-elevation myocardial infarction that resulted in an extensive IAD from the ostium of the right coronary artery to the aortic root, ascending aorta, and aortic arch...

A 74-year-old woman was admitted for right coronary angioplasty. During the procedure, she complained about chest pain, and contrast injection showed an iatrogenic dissection of the ascending aorta. A contrast computed tomography (CT) scan confirmed the diagnosis via visualization of a large non-circulating false lumen, which involved nearly the entire ascending aorta. The patient remained hemodynamically stable and asymptomatic while receiving medical therapy alone. Another CT scan performed 3 days later showed complete regression of the false lumen...

Spontaneous coronary artery dissection (SCAD) is a well-known but infrequent cause of acute coronary syndrome (ACS), and often goes unrecognized. Although management of SCAD is, at times, controversial, when a patient presents with ACS, percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) is frequently necessary. We present a patient with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) with SCAD that illustrates two important points: use of intracoronary optical coherence tomography to guide PCI, and histologic assessment to provide a unique insight into the etiology of SCAD...

Spontaneous coronary artery dissection (SCAD) is a rare cause of acute coronary syndromes and sudden cardiac death. The epidemiology, pathogenesis, and optimal approaches to diagnosis and management are poorly understood. Additionally, SCAD as a syndrome is commonly under-recognized and its prognosis is not well studied. Guidelines on management of SCAD have not yet been established. We present three cases of SCAD that varied in their clinical presentation and describe the different management strategies utilized...

BACKGROUND: Although about half of patients with spontaneous coronary artery dissection (SCAD) face ongoing necrosis, conservative therapy is recommended due to a high complication rate in angiography-guided percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). The aim of this study was to investigate clinical outcomes of SCAD treated by optical coherence tomography (OCT)-guided PCI. METHODS: This study consisted of consecutive 306 patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS) who underwent OCT-guided PCI...

A 78-year-old woman presented with acute inferior ST-segment-elevation myocardial infarction and complete heart block. Angiography revealed spontaneous coronary artery dissection (SCAD) of her right coronary artery. Given her ongoing instability, we proceeded to primary coronary intervention. A strategy of sealing the distal lesion edge followed by the proximal edge containing the intramural hematoma before placing a final stent to the midsegment was decided on (3-stent strategy). Our case represents the second such "sequential stent-sandwiching" report and provides a strategy for percutaneous coronary intervention in hemodynamically unstable patients with SCAD...

INTRODUCTION: Patients presenting with spontaneous coronary artery dissection (SCAD) may receive either conservative medical management or a revascularisation strategy. There is still a lack of consensus with respect to the best treatment approach for SCAD. OBJECTIVES: We sought to determine whether outcomes differ between the first-line treatment approaches (conservative versus revascularisation) in patients with SCAD. METHODS: We searched Medline, EMBASE and the Cochrane Library for studies published from January 1990 to November 2016 that compared first-line treatments for patients with SCAD...

Intramural hematoma of the esophagus is a rare condition that can be spontaneous or secondary to trauma, toxic ingestion, or intervention. If it is the spontaneous type, it usually presents initially with epigastric pain, hematemesis or dysphagia. We present a case of intramural hematoma of the esophagus mimicking acute coronary syndrome. A 63-year-old man presented with severe acute chest pain. He has four coronary stents that were inserted five years ago, from a different hospital, and is on dual antiplatelet agents...
