This study groups aims at improving awareness and understanding of this rare coronary artery disease.By establishing a European SCAD registry, the group creates a platform for collaborative research.
Spontaneous coronary artery dissection (SCAD) is 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.
The European SCAD registry is a platform for collaborative research into this condition.
The SCAD Study Group, with interested parties from ESC partner countries, establishes lead national collaborators around which to build the SCAD registry and research infrastructure.
The study group on SCAD, created in January 2016, is part of ACVC.
