Abstract

Spontaneous coronary artery dissection is a rare diagnosis in a postmenopausal woman. We report a case of a 55-year-old postmenopausal woman, who presented with acute myocardial infarction due to spontaneous long dissection of left anterior descending coronary artery, complicated with repetitive ventricular tachycardia, rapid formation of left ventricular aneurysm with thrombus, pulmonary edema and cardiogenic shock, with subsequent improvement after successful angioplasty and intensive care. We also present a short review of the literature.
