Angina is the very short term lack of blood flow to the heart with no tissue death. Myocardial infarction is the complete lack of oxygen to the heart muscle and the muscle tissue death.

Np. Angina refers to chest pain, such as from vasospasm of the coronary arteries, or from an impending myocardial infarction. The term, myocadial infarction, refers to cardiac muscle damage and death (a small MI involving a small area of the heart, and a large MI involving a larger portion of the heart).

Angina is a paroxysmal chest pain or pressure sensation associated with transient myocardial infarction.

Angina is chest pain due to ischemia (a lack of blood, thus a lack of oxygen supply and waste removal) of the heart muscle, generally due to obstruction or spasm of the coronary arteries (the heart's blood vessels). Myocardial Infarction is cellular death of the heart muscle due to lack of oxygen, often caused by blockage of arteries. Essentially angina proceeds a myocardial infarction, both are caused by low/no oxygen reaching some part of the heart

MI also known as myocardial infarction is a radiating pain from the chest to your peripherals as angina is central pain of the chest. MI is also severe and can lead to death if not treated appropriately.

Six types of cardiovascular diseases are angina, cardiomyopathy, stroke, hypertension, tricuspid stenosis, and myocardial infarction.

Angina is a medical term for chest pain. Symptoms of Heart Attack or Myocardial Infarction is Angina(chest pain), the pain usually radiates to the jaw, right shoulder and back. Pain could be mild to severe, it should not be ignored and it needs immediate medical intervention.

starting point for detecting many cardiac problems, including angina pectoris, stable angina, ischemic heart disease, arrhythmias (irregular heartbeat), tachycardia (fast heartbeat), bradycardia (slow heartbeat), myocardial infarction (heart attack

There is a very slight risk of myocardial infarction (a heart attack) from the exercise, as well as cardiac arrhythmia (irregular heart beats), angina, or cardiac arrest (about one in 100,000).

well it has chances to cause angina pectoris

User Avatar

Yes, angina pectoris is due to inadequate blood supply or ischemia. Prolonged ischemia however may progress to necrosis wherein the heart cells die. In this instance it is now called Myocardial Infarction or a heart attack.

No. You should capitalize diseases that have a proper noun in them, like Down's syndrome, or Grave's disease, but things like myocardial infarction or angina, including emphysema should not be capitalized.

The pain of angina pectoris and myocardial infarction is sometimes referred to the head and neck region. The mechanism for this effect remains obscure. A case is presented here that reports that electrical stimulation of a cardiac branch of the left vagus nerve in humans can cause referred craniofacial pain. This leads to the hypothesis that the vagus nerve plays a role in mediating this pain.

An electrocardiogram detects the presence of acute coronary blockage (occlusion). A history of myocardial infarction can also be detected by electrocardiogram. Patients with a history of angina also are evaluated for coronary artery disease.

some of them like hypertension, coronary heart disease, arrhythmias and angina (chest pain) can be cured efficiently with atenolol mediciation. It is also used to treat and reduce the risk of heart complications following myocardial infarction (heart attack).

Very large quantity of fat can be stored in your body. Some of it will be deposited in inner wall of the blood vessels including coronary boold vessels. Thus it can lead to angina pectoris and myocardial infarction.

There may be st segment elevated or depressed in st deviation. The st elevation with t wave inversion is seen in acute myocardial wall infarction. The st depression with t wave inversion indicates angina pectoris.

A myocardial infarction (MI) is caused by inadequate oxygen supply to the heart. MI's can be caused by numerous events. The most common type of MI's are caused by blockages in the coronary arteries, which solely supply the heart muscle. This can be due to a thrombosis (a clot formed at the location) or an embolism (a clot or matter that has traveled through the system and lodges at the location).Other causes of chest pain that may lead to an MI include coronary artery spasm and angina. Although usually temporary and do not cause any damage, chest pain associated with angina or coronary artery spasm must be diagnosed by a doctor.

Myocardial ischemia is the medical term meaning inadequate oxygen to the heart. If it is prolonged, it may result in myocardial infarction (heart attack), which is tissue damage due to lack of blood flow. During the period of inadequate oxygen delivery, a person may feel crushing chest pain called "angina pectoris."

User Avatar

could be cardiac complication such as angina pectoris and could lead to myocardial infarction you need to see your doctor he could prescribe an anticoagulant or vasodilator such as anginine

User Avatar

angina is a SYMPTOM of coronary artery disease, known as Arteroma. angina petcoris occurs when the demand for blood by the heart exceeds the supply from the coronary arteries.

These are nitrates derivative & use in the treatment of cardiovascular disease like - Angina, Myocardial infraction & Cardiac failure.
