Myocardial infarction is a regional loss of myocardial tissue secondary to impaired circulation. It is caused by occlusion of the lumen of a coronary vessel.

About 20% of infarctions are asymptomatic ("silent" infarction). The severity and quality of the symptoms differ widely between individuals.
