Heart attack. Conceptual computer artwork representing a myocardial infarction, or heart attack. The abnormal heart has been smothered by plastic and is flanked by two healthy hearts. Heart attacks occur due to the sudden death, or necrosis, of the heart muscle, usually resulting from blocked or constricted coronary arteries, which supply the muscle with blood. Heart attacks cause sudden severe pain in the centre of the chest, and around half are fatal within days.
