Intraoperative cardiac arrest (ICA) is a crucial property of morbidity and mortality for patients undergoing surgical operations. Spontaneous coronary artery dissection (SCAD) is an important cause of ICA and perioperative myocardial infarction, especially in young women. In this case report, we presented the successful management of SCAD-induced ICA in a 46-year-old female patient who underwent posterior spinal instrumentation in the prone position due to lumbar intervertebral disc extrusion.
