Recent advances in the treatment of depression and the risk of myocardial infarction.
Myocardial Infarction (MI), also referred to as a "heart attack," is brought on by a partial or total interruption of blood supply to the myocardium. Myocardial infarction can either be “silent” or go undiagnosed, or it can be a catastrophic occurrence that causes hemodynamic decline and sudden death. The primary cause of death in the United States and the underlying cause of the majority of myocardial infarctions is coronary artery disease. Coronary artery blockage deprives the myocardium of oxygen. Myocardial necrosis and cell death can occur if the myocardium is continuously deprived of oxygenAuthor(s): Sugiyama Hiroshi
