Coronary thrombosis is the formation of a blood clot inside a blood vessel of the heart. Thrombosis in the heart can lead to a myocardial infarction. Coronary Thrombosis is common in high blood pressure patient, diabetic, and victims of atherosclerosis. The treatment is reducing pain, improving blood flow to the heart muscle, and preventing irreversible damage to the heart muscle.
Coronary Thrombosis in the heart can lead to a myocardial infarction. Coronary thrombosis and myocardial infarction are sometimes used as synonyms, although this is technically inaccurate as the thrombosis refers to the blocking of blood vessels, while the infarction refers to the tissue death due to the consequent loss of blood flow to the heart tissue. The heart contains many connecting blood vessels, and depending upon the location of the thrombosis, the infarction may cause no symptoms.
