Our Approach to Treating

Heart Attack with No Blockage

Experts at NYU Langone Heart specialize in diagnosing and treating heart attack with no blockage, also known as myocardial infarction with nonobstructive coronary arteries (MINOCA). In a typical heart attack, the coronary arteries are severely narrowed or completely blocked by cholesterol plaque and blood clots. In heart attack with no blockage, the arteries may have some plaque that is not severely blocking the arteries, or even no plaque at all. MINOCA has a variety of causes.

NYU Langone cardiologists use advanced diagnostic tools, some of which are offered by only a few care centers, for timely and precise diagnosis. Then we tailor treatment to address the underlying cause of the heart attack using personalized approaches, including appropriate medications and lifestyle changes like diet and exercise. Our goal is to identify a specific diagnosis so we can effectively reduce the risk of future heart events for each patient.

Treatment for Heart Attack with No Blockage

Treatment for heart attack with no blockage is based on the specific cause of the heart event, and may include medications or lifestyle changes.
