Study on Revascularization for SCAD

May 9, 2020

In a new study Long-term Outcome After Emergency Revascularization for SCAD funded by SCAD Research, Inc., researchers from the Minneapolis Heart Institute Foundation (MHIF) compared the long-term outcomes of 55 patients with revascularization (including attempted) at initial angiogram with 63 non-revascularized patients at initial angiogram.

The findings were presented by Dr. Christina Thaler, a researcher at MHIF, at the American College of Cardiology (ACC) 2020 World Congress. The presentation was scheduled to place March 28-30 in Chicago, IL. The presentation was done virtually due to COVID-19. The results are unpublished findings.

In 2019, in addition to our ongoing support of Mayo Clinic SCAD Research Program, our Board of Directors decided to offer a grant to another research program. The Minneapolis Heart Institute Foundation applied and was awarded the grant.
Thank you to everyone who helped to raise money for research in 2019 to help advance research in this important area.
