Patients and healthcare providers
Spontaneous coronary artery dissection (SCAD) is an uncommon cause of myocardial infarction (MI) overall, but an increasingly recognized cause of heart attack, particularly in women. There has been incredible progress made in the understanding of SCAD in recent years, and the goal of this symposium is to provide updated information about SCAD to an audience of patients and their loved ones.
Topics will include a basic review of the anatomy and physiology of the heart and arteries, a description of common cardiology tests and procedures and why they are performed, and a review of why SCAD may happen and how SCAD heart attacks are treated. A highlight of this meeting will be special breakout sessions that will allow patients to interact in smaller groups to discuss important topics such as developing coping methods after SCAD, finding ways to help others who have experienced a SCAD, and defining strategies for caregivers to cope after their loved ones have suffered a SCAD heart attack. There will also be talks on mental health, physical activity, and reproductive health considerations after a SCAD heart attack.
The Sanger SCAD Patient Symposium is offered and brought to you by The Izard Family Fund for Excellence in Women’s Cardiovascular Care.
