Grand Rounds | Myocardial infarction with nonobstructive coronary arteries

Presentation by:

Professor Michael Williams | Clinical Professor, Department of Medicine

Dr Sean Coffey | Senior Lecturer, Department of Medicine

Grand Rounds_identifierMyocardial 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.

The Grand Rounds is a monthly lecture series presenting cutting edge health research by leaders in their fields. Formerly known as Medical Forum, these seminars are designed for health professionals, academic and clinical researchers, and students across the Division of Health Sciences.
