Myocardial infarction is damage to the heart muscle when blood flow stops running to a certain part of the heart. It is usually caused by coronary artery disease. This disease can develop because of such factors as older age, sedentary lifestyle, smoking, obesity, alcoholism and bad dietary habits. If not treated in a timely manner, myocardial infarction can result in heart failure or cardiac arrest. According to statistics, 36% of myocardial infarction cases are caused by smoking and 20% are caused by obesity. About 10% of cases are caused by a lack of physical activity. In 3% of cases, myocardial infarction is caused by job-related stress. Heart attacks are more common in men, but because of the fact that life expectancy of women is slightly higher, there is a bigger amount of death cases in women. In the USA alone, about 71,500 people annually will have a heart attack. About 15% of them will die of this. There are about 3.7 million people worldwide who go to the hospital because of heart disease.
A doctor will choose which of these three methods would be the best to treat your heart, depending on your general health, age and severity of the heart attack you have suffered.
