The mission of the International SCAD Registry is to develop and maintain an independent, quality data repository to advance the pace and breadth of SCAD research around the world, toward the common goals of improving patient diagnosis and outcomes and accelerating scientific discovery.
The vision of the International SCAD Registry is a robust collaboration of SCAD researchers around the globe who employ iSCAD’s continuously sourced, adequately powered data to assess outcomes and develop best practices and clinical guidelines for the ultimate goal of preventing SCAD or its recurrence.
SCAD Alliance is a unique organization with an integrated approach to the challenges facing spontaneous coronary artery dissection, or SCAD, patients and those who care about them. Our four-leaf “lucky” heart logo represents the torn artery we must overcome, supported by family, health partners, and researchers. With a focus on collaboration, SCAD Alliance has incorporated the many disciplines that play a role in researching spontaneous coronary artery dissection and caring for patients. We have crafted a team whose members are expert in the fields of cardiology, vascular disease, clinical psychology, connective tissue disorders, obstetrics/gynecology, endocrinology, and genetics. Founded in November 2013, our name says it all: SCAD Alliance.
