Brief Summary:
Multicenter observational prospective registry, Spanish nationwide-based, of consecutive patients diagnosed with Spontaneous Coronary Artery Dissection (SCAD)

Condition or disease
Spontaneous Coronary Artery Dissection

Detailed Description:

Multicenter prospective registry on patients with diagnosis of Spontaneous Coronary Artery Dissection (SCAD). Spanish nationwide based, the aims of the current registry are:

  1. To analyze predisposing factors, potential triggers and associated pathologies of patients presenting with SCAD.
  2. To study the clinical and angiographic presentation of these patients.
  3. To analyze the value of intracoronary diagnostic techniques (OCT, IVUS) and non-invasive imaging techniques in the diagnosis of this pathology.
  4. To better understand the in-hospital clinical evolution and the response to medical treatment or revascularization in these challenging patients, taking into account the angiographic or intravascular imaging morphological characteristics of SCAD and the treatment applied.
  5. To analyze its long-term clinical evolution (adverse cardiovascular events, including recurrence of SCAD).
  6. To identify those factors directly related to prognostic and risk of recurrence.
