The heart is one of the largest muscles in the body. It is the motor that circulates the blood throughout the blood vessels in the body. The coronary blood vessels keeps the heart nourished, helping it to pump blood. Any disease or blockage of the coronary arteries can deprive the muscle tissue oxygen-carrying blood. This muscle tissue that forms the wall of the heart is called the myocardium. When the shortage of oxygen gets so bad that many cells die, it’s called infarction. The medical name for a heart attack is an acute myocardial infarction (MI).
