If you, or any of your patients, would like to participate in clinical trials to help us understand spontaneous coronary artery dissection (SCAD), you can begin here.
Early research provides clues to the causes of spontaneous coronary artery dissection (SCAD) and suggests special considerations for patient care.
In an effort to further our understanding of the disease and support physicians and caregivers, we’ve compiled resources related to spontaneous coronary artery dissection (SCAD).
There are many groups online, formed by families and friends affected by SCAD. Recognizing symptoms and understanding continued research furthers support for patients and loved ones.
The more we know about SCAD, the better outcomes our patients will have. Knowledge is power. Share yours and help further our cause by joining the SCAD Alliance.
“What comes to mind … advocate, resources, a lifeline, heart sisters. I volunteer so younger active people know they too are at risk. I volunteer to find the cause.”
“I volunteer to try to help everyone affected by SCAD, and to educate the medical community — particularly those in emergency medicine — to recognize and treat SCAD quickly and appropriately.”
“I think we need to remind ourselves that we don’t know much about SCAD. So it’s important that we take care of ourselves, visit our doctors, and be very conscious of the fact that whatever problems we have could be related to our heart.”
“SCAD Alliance is the ‘heart’ of collaborative SCAD science and progress. I volunteer to ensure that everyone understands that every blockage is critical, and we won’t rest until the cause of artery dissection is understood.”
