Myocardial infarction (heart attack) initially has been reported as due to atherosclerotic plaque rupture with superimposed thrombus interrupting blood supply to the myocardium. In recent years, conditions which mimic the presentation of myocardial infarction have been recognised, including broken heart syndrome and myocarditis. This talk will review the range of presentations of possible myocardial infarction and the role of imaging in differentiating the underlying diagnosis. New Zealand research on this presentation along with clinical outcomes will be reviewed.
A healthy, brown paper bag lunch will be provided.
