Spontaneous coronary artery dissection (SCAD) is a rare condition that is often underdiagnosed given limitations of conventional cineangiography. In addition to the diagnostic challenge, the condition poses a major therapeutic dilemma given paucity of literature to guide management. We report the case of a 55-year-old woman, who presented with acute coronary syndrome. Coronary angiography at the time of the index hospitalization revealed type 2 SCAD. She was managed conservatively. Repeat coronary angiography three months later showed complete resolution of the previously noted dissection...

Spontaneous coronary artery dissection (SCAD) is a rare cause of acute myocardial infarction. While its etiology and pathogenesis remain not fully understood, SCAD occurs most frequently in patients at a young age and of a female gender. We report a case of SCAD in a 52-year-old healthy postmenopausal woman who developed acute myocardial infarction and subsequent ventricular aneurysm after emotional stress. This case may provide valuable insight into this rare disease and highlights the importance of psychological factors as contributing factors of SCAD in postmenopausal women with acute onset of chest pain...

Spontaneous coronary artery dissection (SCAD) is a non-atherosclerotic, non-traumatic cause of coronary artery dissection. SCAD is the most common cause of myocardial infarction in pregnancy or the postpartum period and results in significant cardiovascular morbidity and mortality in the pregnant population. It is important to consider pregnancy-associated spontaneous coronary artery dissection (PASCAD) high on the differential for a pregnant woman who presents with symptoms consistent with acute coronary syndrome...

Despite recent efforts to reduce cardiovascular disease, it remains the leading cause of morbidity and mortality among women, particularly younger women. When compared to men, women have more inpatient complications, mortality, heart failure, and stroke following acute myocardial infarction (AMI) despite having less obstructive coronary artery disease. Moreover, women are less likely to have AMI from plaque rupture than men, and more likely to experience alternate etiologies of AMI including plaque erosion and spontaneous coronary artery dissection...

Spontaneous coronary artery dissection (SCAD) is a rare cause of Acute Coronary Syndrome. Although its treatment is still debated, use of Bioreasorbable Scaffold was recently advocated as an attractive option in this setting. We report the first case, to our knowledge, of a new magnesium-made Bioresorbable Scaffold implantation in a young woman presenting with Non-ST- Elevation Myocardial Infarction and a rapid worsening SCAD.

BACKGROUND: The etiology of spontaneous dissection of coronary artery (SDCA) is not well understood yet. Different studies have linked this entity to pregnancy, physical stress, collagen diseases and vasculitis. In general, patients do not exhibit the classic risk factors for coronary artery disease, which mandates the suspicion of this condition, especially in young adults with acute coronary syndrome. CASE REPORT: In this article, we report the case of a 63-year old male patient, asymptomatic, who came for periodic evaluation and after evaluation by exercise and myocardial scintigraphy had high suspicion for severe coronary artery disease and underwent coronary angiography, which showed spontaneous dissection of the left and right branches of the coronary arteries...

Spontaneous coronary artery dissection (SCAD) remains an infrequent and elusive clinical entity of unknown etiology. However, our knowledge of SCAD has been significantly enriched in recent years. Large and prospective contemporary series have increased the interest in this disease with fewer patients misdiagnosed and a growing number of cases recognized in daily clinical practice. Classically, SCAD was thought to present mainly in young women without traditional atherosclerotic risk factors but, actually, most patients are middle-aged and are not free from coronary risk factors...

BACKGROUND: Spontaneous coronary artery dissection (SCAD) is the most common cause of pregnancy-associated myocardial infarction and remains poorly characterized. OBJECTIVES: This study sought to assess presentation, clinical factors, and outcomes of pregnancy-associated spontaneous coronary artery dissection (P-SCAD) compared with spontaneous coronary artery dissection not associated with pregnancy (NP-SCAD). METHODS: A Mayo Clinic registry was established in 2010 to include comprehensive retrospective and prospective SCAD data...

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) remains the number one cause of death in women. It is estimated that 44 million women in the United States are either living with or at risk for heart disease. This article highlights the recent significant progress made in improving care, clinical decision-making, and policy implications for women with CVD. We provide our perspective supported by evidence-based advances in cardiovascular research and clinical care guidelines in seven areas: (1) primary CVD prevention and community heart care, (2) secondary prevention of CVD, (3) stroke, (4) heart failure and cardiomyopathies, (5) ischemia with nonobstructive coronary artery disease, (6) spontaneous coronary artery dissection, and (7) arrhythmias and device therapies...

Pregnancy results in substantial hemodynamic and prothrombotic changes that form the foundation for downstream vascular complications, both during pregnancy and in the postpartum period. In addition, several important risk factors, including older patient age, diabetes, and smoking, can increase the risk for vascular-related pregnancy complications. Because radiologists often play an important role in evaluation of the pregnant patient, understanding the pathophysiology of vascular-related complications in pregnancy and their imaging appearances is essential for diagnostic accuracy...

Spontaneous coronary artery dissection or SCAD is a rare and challenging disease that is increasingly diagnosed. It is characterized by a non-traumatic, non-iatrogenic separation of the coronary artery wall and occurs predominantly in young and middle-aged women without traditional cardiovascular risk factors. SCAD is often associated with predisposing conditions such as the peripartum period, systemic inflammatory disease and heritable connective tissue disease. More recently, independent investigators have demonstrated an important association with fibromuscular dysplasia...

A 40-year-old female presented to a rural hospital with crushing substernal chest pain. An initial electrocardiogram showed ST elevation in lead II and aVF with elevated troponin I. She was immediately transferred to a tertiary care hospital. An emergent coronary angiogram did not show any significant coronary artery disease. On the second day, the patient experienced recurrence of severe chest pain with ST elevations in leads I, aVL, V5-V6, ST depressions in V1-V3, T-wave inversion over V2-V5. The troponin I level increased to > 40 ng/ml (normal 0...

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...
