INOCA stands for Ischaemia with Non Obstructed Coronary Arteries and for the purposes of this website, includes the conditions of;
- Coronary Artery Spasm.
- Coronary Microvascular Dysfunction.
- Microvascular Angina.
- Endothelial Dysfunction.
Inoca conditions are often misunderstood and are also frequently under-recognised, under-diagnosed and under-treated.
Inoca International is a patient partnership which brings together patients and medical professionals from around the world. The Meeting aims to promote a better, clearer, more consistent understanding and approach to these conditions with a view also to improving clinical outcomes and quality of life for patients.
Better understanding will hopefully mean better care. This will not only benefit patients but also hold the possibility of reducing the financial burden for both healthcare providers and patients themselves – repeat A&E visits, missed diagnoses and the significant impact of these conditions on quality of life.
THE PATIENTS raised funds to support the meeting and to ensure that all costs and expenses relating to the meeting were covered. The speakers were not associated with the GoFundMe page in any way (and did not request it). This was a patient group initiative to ensure the September Meeting was the best it could possibly be for everyone attending.
INOCA International would like to sincerely thank the 88 people across the world who so very kindly donated to the fundraiser and would also like to thank all those who were unable to contribute but who so very kindly supported both the meeting and the team.
