A heart attack usually occurs when the flow of oxygen rich blood to the heart muscles suddenly gets blocked.   If the flow of blood is not restored immediately, the heart muscles start sinking and eventually die.  Heart attack is also named as Cardiac infarction, myocardial infarction and coronary thrombosis.

Heart attack most often happens due to buildup of waxy substance called plaque inside the coronary arteries that supply oxygen rich blood to the heart.  When the plaque buildup eventually breaks open inside an artery, blood clot is formed on the plaque’s surface.

It the clot is big enough, it can completely block supply of blood to the heart through a coronary artery. The blockage must be treated quickly; otherwise heart won’t be able to pump enough blood that our body needs.  Severe spam in the coronary arteries can also cut the blood supply to the heart. This is a leading cause of death in many cases.
