In brief: Usually
Coronary dissections can be induced or rarely be spontaneous.
They can occur during coronary interventions. If flow to the heart muscle severely compromised, myocardial necrosis may occur. If not corrected may progress to thrombosis, acute cardiac death, acute potentially fatal arrythmias, low cardiac output syndrome.
