New Research on Rare Heart Condition

By

A rare heart condition that very people know about, but over at Mayo Clinic, researchers and patients are working to change that. They call it SCAD, short for Spontaneous Coronary Artery Dissection. "They've got the blood flow going and what happens is a tear in the artery. That flap will close the artery and then cause blockage of the blood flow and then a heart attack," Dr. Sharonne Hayes explains.
