What is Myocardial Infarction?
Myocardial infarction (MI) refers to tissue death (also called infarction) of the heart muscle or myocardium.
Among those over 75 years old about 5% have had an MI with little or no history of symptoms.
A number of tests are useful to help with diagnosis, including electrocardiograms (ECGs), blood tests, and coronary angiography.

The most prominent risk factors for myocardial infarction
Eating polyunsaturated fat instead of saturated fats has been shown in studies to be associa ed with a ecreased risk of myocardial infarction.
Family history of heart diseases or Myocardial Infarction, particularly if one has a male first- degree relative who had a myocardial infarction before age 55 years, or a female first-degree relative less than age 65 increases a person's risk of MI.
