Disease Myocardial Ischemia

Name Myocardial Ischemia
Synonyms Disease, Ischemic Heart | Diseases, Ischemic Heart | Heart Disease, Ischemic | Heart Diseases, Ischemic | Ischemia, Myocardial | Ischemias, Myocardial | Ischemic Heart Disease | Ischemic Heart Diseases | Myocardial Ischemias
Definition A disorder of cardiac function caused by insufficient blood flow to the muscle tissue of the heart. The decreased blood flow may be due to narrowing of the coronary arteries (CORONARY ARTERY DISEASE), to obstruction by a thrombus (CORONARY THROMBOSIS), or less commonly, to diffuse narrowing of arterioles and other small vessels within the heart. Severe interruption of the blood supply to the myocardial tissue may result in necrosis of cardiac muscle (MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION).
