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.
- Tako Tsubo.
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 of Minds 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.
