LOPEZ, Nilson. Unstable angina secondary to spontaneous coronary dissection. Rev. Colomb. Cardiol. [online]. 2013, vol.20, n.4, pp.233-239. ISSN 0120-5633.

Spontaneous coronary artery dissection is a rare cause of acute myocardial infarction which may also occur as stable angina or heart failure syndrome. Here reported the case of a 35 years old woman who presented recurrent chest pain events in the first month of postpartum and in whom coronary dissection of the circumflex artery was diagnosed, which was intervened with drug eluting stents. Twenty months later she remained free of symptoms and with no evidence of inducible myocardial ischemia.

Keywords : angina; coronary artery disease; echocardiography; coronary angiography; percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty.
