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.
“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.”
“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.”
“Connecting with the SCAD Alliance website and Facebook page became my first line of hope. I found links to a wealth of current research. Best of all, I gained a new realization of strength and hope.”
