abstract The primary aim is to gather observational data from consecutive SCAD patients in Switzerland, in order to establish a National Swiss Registry (SwissSCAD).
SCAD is a poorly understood condition, affecting young patients and is associated with major cardiac adverse outcomes, providing a rationale to establish a national registry in order to increase data and knowledge of this pathology, its outcomes and its treatments.
Primary objectives: Baseline characteristics, Hospital clinical characteristics, Predisposing conditions, Management and Treatment.
Secondary objectives: Major cardiovascular events at 30 days, 1 year and 5 years.
