In brief: Coronary artery

A crushing chest pain, the kind of pain that you have never experience before.
This may be followed by sudden collapse as the patient develops serious and life-threatening heart rhythm problems.

In brief: Like fixing it.

Dissection of the coronary arteries is where layers of the wall of arteries that supply blood to heart muscle split because of high pressure or injury (like a stent).
This blocks blood flow and can cause damage to heart muscle. Most of the time, it must be fixed immediately.
