Author information

Department of Cardiac Surgery, Christiana Hospital, Christiana Care Health System, Newark, Delaware 19718, USA.


Spontaneous coronary dissection is a rare but potentially life-threatening condition. It often occurs in late pregnancy and may pose significant risks for the patient and the fetus. Its cause remains uncertain, and established guidelines for management have not been developed. In this report, close multidisciplinary collaboration has led to excellent outcomes in this condition.
