A Review of Diagnosis, Etiology, Assessment, and Management of Patients with Myocardial Infarction in the Absence of Obstructive Coronary Artery Disease
Myocardial infarction (MI) in the absence of obstructive coronary artery disease (MINOCA) is prevalent in around 5% of acute myocardial infarction (AMI) presentations. MINOCA is a heterogeneous entity with many different etiologies. It is important for health care providers to familiarize themselves with the disease process, presentation, and possible underlying causes in order to guide appropriate management strategies. In this article, the authors review the contemporary definition, etiologies and assessment, and management for AMI patients with MINOCA.
