Abstract

Spontaneous coronary artery dissection (SCAD) is an important cause of acute coronary syndrome and sudden death in young persons, particularly women. Associated conditions include fibromuscular dysplasia, peripartum status, and episodes of extreme emotion or exercise. Because of heightened awareness and improved diagnostic accuracy, it is increasingly important for clinicians to understand SCAD. Moreover, short-term and long-term management strategies diverge from typical strategies for atherosclerotic disease. In this Concise Review, we aim to highlight the key points about SCAD, including presentation, diagnosis, associated conditions, and short-term and long-term management.
