Spontaneous Coronary Artery Dissection, or SCAD Posted by In the Loop (@intheloop) Mayo Clinic.

Sharonne Hayes, M.D., founder of Mayo’s Women’s Heart Clinic in Rochester and one of the country’s leading researchers of SCAD, tells The Times that most SCAD patients don’t show any “traditional” heart attack symptoms of signs. The condition occurs when a tear forms suddenly in one of the blood vessels in the heart, slowing or blocking blood flow to the heart. “The vast majority of the patients we’ve seen with SCAD have whistle clean arteries,” she adds.
