Wild at heart: 34-year-old male with new onset dyspnea, heart failure and history of amphetamine use; a case report
A 34-year-old male with an unremarkable past medical history presented to a cardiologist with prominent dyspnea and orthopnea and was diagnosed with amphetamine-induced spontaneous coronary artery dissection and resultant ischemic cardiomyopathy.
Pill to Pain: First Case of Topiramate-Induced Chronic Spontaneous Coronary Artery Dissection (SCAD)
A case of a 51-year-old female who developed sudden-onset chest pain after taking topiramate and was discharged home on aspirin, statins, and beta-blockers is reported, more common in women than men.
Spontaneous Coronary Artery Dissection (SCAD): A Series of 7 Cases, Experience of the University Hospital Center Mohammed VI, Oujda, Morocco
This work reports the experience in the University Hospital Center of Mohammed VI, Oujda, Morocco, about 7 cases diagnosed by coronary angiography during 3 years of practice while comparing the results with data from large series published in the literature.
The article presents a literature review on the problem of spontaneous dissection of the coronary artery (SCAD) — tearing of its wall, not associated with atherosclerosis, trauma or iatrogenic
Sex-Based Considerations in the Evaluation of Chest Pain and Management of Obstructive Coronary Artery Disease
This review sought to describe the sex-based considerations in evaluation and management of obstructive CAD, underscore the mechanisms behind these considerations, and help develop a more personalized approach according to current paradigms.
Spontaneous coronary artery dissection, a commonly overlooked etiology of acute coronary syndrome
It is important to recognize the possibility of SCAD in young female patients so that potentially harmful interventions, such as starting these patients immediately on heparin, use of thrombolytic therapy, and emergent PCI that can lead to worse outcomes, are avoided.
Spontaneous Coronary Artery Dissection: An Unusual Cause of ST-Elevation Myocardial Infarction in Young Males
A case of acute ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) due to SCAD in a 44-year-old healthy male is reported, and it is reported that this case is rarely reported in males.

Characteristics and outcomes of patients with spontaneous coronary artery dissection who suffered sudden cardiac arrest
Sudden cardiac arrest in SCAD patients is associated with left main or proximal coronary lesions, and secondary prevention ICD did not show benefit in this cohort.
Updates in Spontaneous Coronary Artery Dissection
Conservative management of recurrent spontaneous coronary artery dissection is recommended, including cardiac rehabilitation for SCAD with low-risk features, while coronary revascularization should be considered inSCAD with high- risk features.
