Big news! Mayo announces SCAD studies!

I cannot tell you all how excited I am to see this.

Mayo Clinic is now doing two studies on Spontaneous Coronary Artery Dissections.

This is huge. SCADs are so rare and so poorly understood, to have a prestigious institution like Mayo taking an interest and doing studies is fantastic.

Here's to advancing medical knowledge!


  1. Hi Laura - this is indeed BIG NEWS and you and Katherine should be justifiably proud of your influence on making this new research happen. Way to go!!!

    I've put a permanent sidebar "News" link to this Mayo site from my blog Heart Sisters -

    Congratulations on getting this ball rolling.... :-)
