The physiopathology underlying spontaneous coronary artery dissection remains largely unknown. Endothelial dysfunction is an early feature of many vascular disorders. We sought to determine the endothelial function assessed by reactive hyperemia peripheral arterial tonometry (RH-PAT) in patients with SCAD and compare it to that of non-SCAD patients with similar cardiovascular risk profile.
