Acute Coronary Syndrome (ACS) is a common diagnosis in the emergency department (ED), the most severe manifestation of which is ST elevation on electrocardiogram (ECG). ST elevation reflects obstruction of flow through the coronary arteries, most commonly due to coronary atherosclerotic plaque rupture. However, alternative causes of coronary obstruction causing ST elevation are possible. Spontaneous coronary artery dissection (SCAD) is an unusual cause of ST elevation in ED patients which providers may encounter in patients without traditional atherosclerosis risk factors...

Spontaneous coronary artery dissection (SCAD) is a rare entity that can cause acute myocardial infarction and sudden cardiac death (SCD) which often goes unrecognized. We report a case of SCAD in a young postpartum female who presented with sudden cardiac arrest. The patient was managed medically and found to have fibromuscular dysplasia (FMD). After being stabilized in the critical care unit, coronary angiography was performed which showed dissection of the left main artery, intramural hematoma, and the culprit lesion...

Spontaneous coronary artery dissection (SCAD) and takotsubo cardiomyopathy (TTS) are two non-atherosclerotic causes of myocardial infarction. They share several common features. Firstly, they have a predilection for the female gender and, in both, the exact mechanism has yet to be fully established. Both they could be responsible for an acute coronary syndrome. Hence, we want to do further consideration based on pathophysiology, literature review, and cases presented affected by both entities up today.

Spontaneous coronary artery dissection (SCAD) is still today an underdiagnosed disease due to the absence of angiographic hallmarks in more than 70% of cases. In several cases, an intravascular imaging is a sole tool for recognizing a dissection. Particularly, optical coherence tomography analysis (OCT) could represent the gold standard technique of easy interpretation and prompt diagnosis. Here we present a rare case of multivessel spontaneous coronary artery disease (SCAD) with atypical collateral circulation...

Spontaneous coronary artery dissection is a rare condition, and diagnosis and treatment are challenging among patients who present with acute coronary syndrome. Typically, the condition affects young females who have no underlying atherosclerotic disease. To date, few cases of bioresorbable scaffold implantation for the treatment of spontaneous coronary artery dissection have been reported. Therefore, we describe the cases of 4 patients whom we treated with scaffolds. We evaluated the long-term results by using intravascular ultrasound and optical coherence tomographic scanning...

Coronary heart disease (CHD) continues to be understudied, underdiagnosed, and undertreated in women. Gender and age bias complicate the evaluation of women with acute coronary syndrome (ACS). As a result, conditions like spontaneous coronary artery dissection (SCAD) are often missed. SCAD is an infrequent yet important cause of myocardial infarction (MI) with a predilection for young to middle aged women. The condition is thought to be under-reported, likely a result of both low index of suspicion as well as an unfamiliarity with SCAD's angiographic variants...

OBJECTIVES: The authors sought to determine the clinical characteristics and in-hospital survival of women presenting with acute myocardial infarction (AMI) and spontaneous coronary artery dissection (SCAD). BACKGROUND: The clinical presentation and in-hospital survival of women with AMI and SCAD remains unclear.

Spontaneous coronary artery dissection is an uncommon cause of acute myocardial infarction in the general population but is relatively more common in the peripartum period. Regardless of clinical setting, the management strategy is individualised, ranging from conservative to invasive. We report a case of peripartum myocardial infarction due to spontaneous coronary dissection that propagated during diagnostic angiography and ultimately required emergent bypass surgery.

Acute coronary artery dissection is a rare, complex disease occurring particularly in young women without traditional cardiovascular risk factors. The pathophysiology and treatment are different from acute coronary syndrome caused by plaque rupture or erosion. Its clinical presentation may vary from unstable angina to sudden cardiac death. Hence, early detection is crucial to manage the dissection and reduce the mortality and morbidity rates. Most coronary dissections will heal spontaneously, and conservative treatment is recommended for uncomplicated cases...

Spontaneous coronary artery dissection (SCAD) is an emerging and rare cause of acute coronary syndrome and sudden cardiac death. While it was previously reported among young females with fibromuscular dysplasia, new literature indicates that this condition could occur in older populations. Polyarteritis nodosa (PAN) causes systemic necrotizing vasculitis which typically affects small to medium-sized muscular arteries and could affect the coronary arteries. A few case reports of PAN causing acute coronary artery disease have been reported in the literature...

BACKGROUND: Spontaneous reanalyzed coronary thrombus (SRCT) has been reported in autopsy series, but little is known about SRCT, and it is potentially under-diagnosed in clinical practice.Methods and Results:SRCT identified on OCT were included in a French multicenter series, the Lotus Root French Registry. A total of 34 SRCT were identified on OCT in 33 patients (23 male; median age, 56 years; IQR, 52-65 years); 23/33 patients (70%) presented with angina pectoris and/or dyspnea. Three angiographic aspects were distinguished retrospectively: braided, pseudo-dissected, and hazy...

Spontaneous coronary artery dissection (SCAD) is an unusual and underdiagnosed cause of nonatherosclerotic acute coronary syndrome (ACS). Patients might present in various ways including chest pain, ST-elevation ACS, ventricular arrhythmia, and sudden cardiac death. In a few reports, it manifested initially as cardiac tamponade. The association of SCAD with free wall rupture is extremely rare. We present a unique case of a 70-year-old woman who initially presented with non-ST elevation ACS and was found to have SCAD on angiography, which was subsequently complicated by cardiac tamponade with free wall rupture...

Cardiovascular disease is an important cause of morbidity and mortality during pregnancy and the postpartum period. During pregnancy, the cardiovascular system undergoes extensive hemodynamic, hormonal, and microstructural changes which may exacerbate a preexisting underlying cardiovascular condition or predispose to cardiovascular complications not typically seen in young healthy women. Such conditions include spontaneous coronary artery dissection, atherosclerotic coronary artery disease, and peripartum cardiomyopathy...

Acute coronary syndrome (ACS) remains a major cause of mortality and morbidity in the world, although it has considerably decreased through technical and pharmacological advances. The physiopathological approach of the ACS has progressed considerably in recent years thanks to the anatomopathological work and the data of the endocoronary imaging, in particular of the endovascular ultrasound (IVUS). Plaque rupture is the most common cause of ACS, however OCT (optical coherence tomography) studies have shown that surface plaque erosion was more common than thought...

Cardiovascular disease in women is a particularly complex pathology especially in the youngest population. The clinical presentation of acute coronary syndromes is sometimes misleading and does not necessarily point to the potential presence of cardiac disease given the frequent absence of cardiovascular risks. Such complexity results in delayed diagnosis, which worsens the outcome of myocardial infarction and generates complications related to the absence of coronary revascularization. We report the case of a patient who suffered an (undiagnosed) apical myocardial infarction that went undetected and was complicated by a voluminous intraventricular thrombus with embolus migration in the cerebral circulation resulting in an ischemic accident...

Medical history We report on a 51-year-old male patient with thoracic pain of acute onset with radiation in the left arm. His cardiovascular risk factors include obesity, smoking and arterial hypertension. Investigations ECG showed no signs of ischemia. The blood test revealed increasing troponin (37 pg/ml; Norm < 14 pg/ml). Therefore we performed cardiac catheterization. The RIVA demonstrated a medial filling defect. Use of OCT imaging showed intimal rupture associated with thrombus. Treatment and course The lesion was stented with a drug eluting stent...
