Descriptor isquemia miocárdica
Entry term(s) cardiopatía isquémica
miocardiopatía isquémica
Scope note: Trastorno de la función cardíaca originado por un flujo sanguíneo insuficiente al tejido muscular del corazón. La disminución del flujo sanguíneo puede deberse al estrechamiento de las arterias coronarias (ENFERMEDAD ARTERIAL CORONARIA), obstrucción por un trombo (TROMBOSIS CORONARIA) o, con menor frecuencia, estrechamiento difuso de las arteriolas y de otros vasos sanguíneos en el interior del corazón. Una interrupción importante del suministro de sangre al tejido miocárdico puede determinar necrosis del músculo cardíaco (INFARTO DE MIOCARDIO).

RDF Unique Identifier: https://id.nlm.nih.gov/mesh/D017202
Scope note: A disorder of cardiac function caused by insufficient blood flow to the muscle tissue of the heart. The decreased blood flow may be due to narrowing of the coronary arteries (CORONARY ARTERY DISEASE), to obstruction by a thrombus (CORONARY THROMBOSIS), or less commonly, to diffuse narrowing of arterioles and other small vessels within the heart. Severe interruption of the blood supply to the myocardial tissue may result in necrosis of cardiac muscle (MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION).
