    Abstract

    Although there is increasing number of reported spontaneous coronary artery dissection (SCAD) recently, this is the first successful operative case of myocardial revascularization on triple-vessel SCAD. Emergency coronary artery bypass grafting was performed on a 42-year-old female presented with acute myocardial infarction, who had failed thrombolysis with on-going angina and acute heart failure.
