The medium-term outcome and cause of death in patients with myocardial infarction with non-obstructive coronary arteries (MINOCA) is not well characterised. The aim of this study was to compare mortality and rates of recurrent events in post myocardial infarction (MI) patients with obstructive coronary artery disease (CAD) and in patients with MINOCA compared with an age and sex-matched cohort without cardiovascular disease (CVD).

Myocardial infarction with non-obstructive coronary arteries (MINOCA) is characterised by clinical evidence of myocardial infarction with normal or near-normal coronary arteries on angiography (stenos...
Dobutamine stress echocardiogram (DSE) is considered a safe and reliable method for screening for underlying myocardial ischaemia. We report a case of a 60-year-old man who developed inferior ST-segme...
A 73-year-old woman with a past medical history of hypertension suffered a cardiac arrest. After successful resuscitation, she was hypotensive and tachycardic and the ECG showed ST elevation in the in...
A positive family history (FHx+) of coronary artery disease (CAD) is a well-known risk factor for the development of coronary pathology in first-degree relatives. We sought to evaluate the association...
Myocardial infarction can be categorized based on ECG-findings (presence or absence of ST-elevations on STEMI/NSTEMI) or on the results from coronary angiography (CAG) (presence or absence of obstruct...
The objective of this study is to analyze the Demographics, Clinical Profiles, Management, in-Hospital and Long-Term Outcomes of Patients with Acute Coronary Syndrome Syndrome And Myocardi...
Myocardial injury is common in patients without acute coronary syndrome, and therefore international guidelines propose a classification of patients with myocardial infarction by aetiology...
Myocardial infarction with non-obstructive coronary arteries" (MINOCA) occurs in 5-10% of all patients with AMI. There are neither any randomized clinical trials in MINOCA patients evaluat...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the prevalence and morphological features of coronary plaques by means of OCT in patients with acute myocardial infarction but without any signific...
Background: Myocardial fibrosis is a major component in cardiac remodeling in patients with myocardial infarction or hibernation. However, the association of cardiac fibrosis and coronary ...
MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION in which the anterior wall of the heart is involved. Anterior wall myocardial infarction is often caused by occlusion of the left anterior descending coronary artery. It can be categorized as anteroseptal or anterolateral wall myocardial infarction.
A malformation that is characterized by a muscle bridge over a segment of the CORONARY ARTERIES. Systolic contractions of the muscle bridge can lead to narrowing of coronary artery; coronary compression; MYOCARDIAL ISCHEMIA; MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION; and SUDDEN CARDIAC DEATH.
Surgical therapy of ischemic coronary artery disease achieved by grafting a section of saphenous vein, internal mammary artery, or other substitute between the aorta and the obstructed coronary artery distal to the obstructive lesion.
Direct myocardial revascularization in which the internal mammary artery is anastomosed to the right coronary artery, circumflex artery, or anterior descending coronary artery. The internal mammary artery is the most frequent choice, especially for a single graft, for coronary artery bypass surgery.
MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION in which the inferior wall of the heart is involved. It is often caused by occlusion of the right coronary artery.
