The study group on SCAD is part of the Acute Cardiovascular Care Association (ACCA).The study group has been created in January 2016.
It aims to improve awareness and understanding of this rare coronary artery disease.By establishing a European SCAD registry the group aims to create a platform for collaborative research.
Spontaneous coronary artery dissection is, as you know, a rare cause of acute myocardial infarction with a predilection for younger mostly female patients and is a primary cause of post-partum AMI.
Current knowledge about the epidemiology, optimal clinical and procedural management, pathophysiology and outcomes is limited to small national series.
In partnership with the Acute Cardiovascular Care Association (ACCA), we are establishing a European SCAD registry as a platform for collaborative research into this condition.
As a first step we would like to establish a SCAD Study Group with interested parties from ESC partner countries aiming to establish lead national collaborators around which to build the SCAD registry and research infrastructure.
