Abstract

To present a case of spontaneous coronary artery dissection (SCAD). Spontaneous coronary artery dissection is rare and often difficult to surgically repair. Additionally, diagnosis by coronary angiography is uncommon. We present a case of SCAD in a postpartum woman who underwent successful surgical correction of the left anterior descending artery. Such surgical intervention in cases similar to ours is critical for survival.
