Arterial Dissection

A heart attack can be the result of a spontaneous tearing in the coronary artery wall.

Aortic dissections can be life-threatening and need to be diagnosed immediately before they rupture, burst or leak. They occur when there is a tear or damage to the inner wall or lining of one of arteries — typically the aorta, carotid or vertebral. Deborah Callicoat suffered a dissection and was treated at INTEGRIS Heart Hospital; watch her story below. To learn more, call 405-949-3011.
