Factors Associated With Revascularization in Women With Spontaneous Coronary Artery Dissection and Acute Myocardial Infarction.
In contrast to atherosclerotic acute myocardial infarction (AMI), conservative therapy is considered preferable in the acute management of spontaneous coronary artery dissection (SCAD) if clinically possible. The present study aimed to investigate factors associated with treatment strategy for SCAD. Women aged ≤60 years with AMI and SCAD were retrospectively identified in the Nationwide Readmissions Database 2010 to 2015 and were divided into revascularization and conservative therapy groups. The revascularization group (n = 1,273, 68.0%), compared with the conservative therapy group (n = 600, 32.0%), had ST-elevation AMI (STEMI) (anterior STEMI, 20.3% vs 10.5%; inferior STEMI, 25.1% vs 14.5%; p
