Role of Optical Coherence Tomography in the Diagnosis of Spontaneous Coronary Artery Dissection

KOSEI TERADA

Abstract


Spontaneous coronary artery dissection (SCAD) is an infrequent and often missed diagnosis among patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS), especially young healthy females. Unfortunately, SCAD can result in significant morbidity, such as ischemia and infarction. Currently, there has been a surge in the diagnosis of SCAD due to the widespread use of new intracoronary imaging modalities, especially optical coherence tomography (OCT).However, no specific guidelines exist concerning appropriate treatment for SCAD. Moreover, the role of intracoronary imaging with OCT has yet to be fully established. The aim of our review is to provide a comprehensive contemporary update of SCAD; the epidemiology, etiology, diagnosis, management and cardiovascular outcomes are reviewed from the viewpoint of OCT.
