Abstract

Abstract:

Spontaneous coronary artery dissection is a rare etiology of myocardial infarction with a higher noted incidence in pregnancy. The recognition and proper treatment of this condition affects patient outcomes. We report the case of a coronary artery dissection during a twin pregnancy involving the left anterior descending artery. Successful treatment with medical management was possible once spontaneous reperfusion had been achieved.
