The management of acute myocardial infarction (AMI)1 has evolved over the past century and particularly in the past 50 years. Important milestones include the development of the electrocardiogram, coronary care units, coronary angiography, reperfusion therapies, and troponin assays. These innovations are the foundation of contemporary AMI management strategies that include a diagnosis centred on elevated troponin values associated with corroborative clinical evidence,1 early use of coronary… Expand
Diagnostic pathways in myocardial infarction with non-obstructive coronary artery disease (MINOCA).
TLDR
Determining the cause of MINOCA and excluding other possible causes for cardiac troponin elevation has notable implications for tailoring secondary prevention measures aimed at improving the overall prognosis of AMI. Expand
Guidelines for the management of myocardial infarction/injury with non-obstructive coronary arteries (MINOCA): a position paper from the Dutch ACS working group
TLDR
This position paper of the Dutch ACS working group of the Netherlands Society of Cardiology aims to stress the importance of considering MINOCA as a dynamic working diagnosis and to guide the clinician in the management of patients withMINOCA by proposing a clinical diagnostic algorithm. Expand
Myocardial Infarction With Nonobstructive Coronary Arteries (MINOCA): The Past, Present, and Future Management
TLDR
An article by Lindahl et al in this issue of Circulation represents a major step forward in MINOCA and thereby warrants taking stock of the past, present, and future management strategies of this intriguing condition. Expand
Myocardial infarction with non-obstructive coronary arteries: Novelties and perspectives
TLDR
Myocardial infarction with non-obstructive coronary arteries is identified using a working diagnosis made following coronary angiography in the assessment of patients with an AMI. Expand
Myocardial infarction with non-obstructive coronary arteries: a humbling diagnosis in 2018
TLDR
While patients with MINOCA have a lower mortality compared with those with obstructive CAD, they do not carry a benign prognosis; an alarming all-cause 1-year mortality risk is found despite the absence of flow-limiting stenosis. Expand
Editor’s Choice- Pathophysiology, diagnosis and management of MINOCA: an update
TLDR
The key principle in the management of this syndrome is to clarify the underlying individual mechanisms to achieve patient-specific treatments, according to the underlying physiopathology. Expand
Typical ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction with normal coronary arteries: a case report
  • Ying Rao, Yu Wang, +7 authors Yue Zhao
  • Medicine
  • The Journal of international medical research
  • 2019
TLDR
An imaging method is explored that is potentially more effective and accurate than CMR, namely MCE combined with 2D-STI, to identify myocardial abnormalities when angiography reveals no obstruction and may optimize timely treatment. Expand
Clinical and electrocardiographic features of patients with myocardial infarction with non-obstructive coronary artery disease (MINOCA)
TLDR
NoCAD patients were older, with higher prevalence of cardiovascular risk factors and more frequently discharged with secondary prevention therapy, and further diagnostic tests should be highly recommended to determine the underlying mechanism of MINOCA. Expand
ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction
TLDR
Primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) has become the preferred reperfusion strategy in patients with STEMI; if PCI cannot be performed within 120 minutes of STEMI diagnosis, fibrinolysis therapy should be administered to dissolve the occluding thrombus. Expand
EMBOLIC MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION. EXPERIENCE IN DIAGNOSIS AND MANAGEMENT
TLDR
Two clinical cases of embolic myocardial infarction in patients with atrial fibrillation, diagnosed in the clinic in 2017 are presented. Expand

Long-term prognosis of patients presenting with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction with no significant coronary artery disease (from the HORIZONS-AMI trial).
TLDR
The outcomes of patients with STEMI in the Harmonizing Outcomes with Revascularization and Stents in Acute Myocardial Infarction (HORIZONS-AMI) trial according to the presence or absence of significant CAD were examined and the 3-year prognosis for these patients was favorable compared to that of patientswith STEMI and with obstructive CAD.

Apical Ballooning Syndrome: An Important Differential Diagnosis of Acute Myocardial Infarction
TLDR
A 60-year-old woman presented to the emergency department 2 hours after the onset of severe retrosternal chest pain that started soon after she was told that her son had died in a car accident, and a diagnosis of acute ST-elevation myocardial infarction was made. Expand
Mechanisms of Myocardial Infarction in Women Without Angiographically Obstructive Coronary Artery Disease
TLDR
Plaque rupture and ulceration are common in women with myocardial infarction without angiographically demonstrable obstructive coronary artery disease, and LGE is common in this cohort of women, with an ischemic pattern of injury most evident. Expand
The role of cardiovascular magnetic resonance in patients presenting with chest pain, raised troponin, and unobstructed coronary arteries.
TLDR
CMR is a valuable adjunct to conventional investigations in a diagnostically challenging and important group of patients with troponin-positive chest pain and unobstructed coronary arteries. Expand
Unanswered questions for management of acute coronary syndrome: risk stratification of patients with minimal disease or normal findings on coronary angiography.
TLDR
Patients with non-ST-segment elevation acute coronary syndromes with nonobstructive coronary artery disease detected by angiography have a substantial risk of subsequent coronary events within 1 year, and the TIMI risk score helps to reveal patients at high risk. Expand
Troponin elevation in coronary vs. non-coronary disease.
TLDR
The aim of this paper is to review data from studies of non-ACS patients with acutely elevated troponin who in clinical practice may be difficult to discriminate from ACS patients. Expand
Long-term outcomes of patients with acute coronary syndrome and nonobstructive coronary artery disease.
TLDR
In conclusion, patients with ACS and nonobstructive CAD remain at high risk of long-term recurrent ischemic events. Expand

TLDR
The current review will focus on the cardiac MRI utility for a comprehensive evaluation of patients with acute and chronic IHD with particular regard to post-infarction remodeling. Expand
Are patients with angiographically near-normal coronary arteries who present as acute myocardial infarction actually safe?
TLDR
Patients with near-normal coronary angiograms had similar clinical outcomes and prognosis compared with one- or two-vessel diseased patients presenting with an acute myocardial infarction. Expand
