      Spontaneous Coronary Artery Dissection: Insights From Histology and Optical Coherence Tomography

      Spontaneous coronary artery dissection (SCAD) is a well-known but infrequent cause of acute coronary syndrome (ACS), and often goes unrecognized. Although management of SCAD is, at times, controversial, when a patient presents with ACS, percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) is frequently necessary. We present a patient with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) with SCAD that illustrates two important points: use of intracoronary optical coherence tomography to guide PCI, and histologic assessment to provide a unique insight into the etiology of SCAD. Following the case, we briefly review the important aspects of the pathophysiology, epidemiology, diagnosis, and interventional management of SCAD.

    2. The Use of Optical Coherence Tomography in Neurology

      Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a noninvasive imaging technique routinely used in ophthalmology to visualize and quantify the layers of the retina. OCT allows direct visualization and measurement of the topography of the optic nerve head and retinal nerve fiber layer thickness in the peripapillary and macular regions with micron-scale resolution. These measurements are of particular interest in optic neuropathies and in numerous neurologic disorders in which there is axonal loss, such as multiple sclerosis. This article provides a detailed overview of OCT and its potential applications in neurology.
