          Spontaneous subclavian artery dissection is rarely reported. We report the case of a 55-year-old female who presented as an non-ST elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI) and was found to have a proximal left subclavian dissection. We provide an overview of current articles addressing the clinical features and treatments of subclavian dissection. To our knowledge, this is the first report of subclavian dissection presenting as an NSTEMI.

          Spontaneous subclavian artery dissection causing ischemia of the arm: diagnosis and endovascular management.

          Spontaneous subclavian artery dissections are rare, with very few cases described in the literature. We report an unusual case of a 62-year-old female who presented with ischemia of the left arm secondary to spontaneous dissection of the first part of the left subclavian artery. We describe the imaging findings on both aortic arch angiogram and CT angiogram and discuss management by endovascular means.

            Subclavian Artery Dissection and Triple Infarction of the Nervous System

            Subclavian artery dissection is a rare entity. It is usually associated with anomalous aortic vasculature. Only with trauma or catheterization procedures is subclavian artery dissection with normal aortic vasculature reported.
