Outcome after myocardial infarction without obstructive coronary artery disease.

Summary of "Outcome after myocardial infarction without obstructive coronary artery disease."

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).

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.
