Abstract
In contrast to the associated with thromboembolic event type 1 myocardial infarction, type 2 myocardial infarction is caused by acute imbalance between oxygen supply and demand of myocardium. Type 2 myocardial infarction may be present in patients with or without obstructive coronary artery disease, but knowledge about patient characteristics, treatments, and outcome in relation to coronary artery status is lacking. We aimed to compare background characteristics, triggering mechanisms, treatment and long-term prognosis in large real-life cohort of patients with type 1 and type 2 myocardial infarction with and without obstructive coronary artery disease.
