MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION AT YOUNG ADULTS – RISK FACTORS AND MANAGEMENT
Keywords:Heart Attack, Cardiovascular Risk Factors, Hypercholesterolemia, Interventional Cardiology
Introduction: Generally, the myocardial infarction is far more common among the population which is over 45 years. However, on rare occasion it can be seen amongst the younger population such as the above discussed case.
Objective: The report from the case of this overview shows an acute myocardial infarction in a young 28-year-old man, due to thrombotic occlusion that has nothing to do with coagulation problems.
Methods: The Coronary Angiography is of paramount importance when it comes to reaching a correct diagnosis, and by extension, treatments for such cases. Moreover, the detailed clinical case history further aided in determining the key risk factors.
Results: When it ensues in younger age, the myocardial infarction is associated with significant morbidity, psychological effects and financial limits to the individual and his or her family.
Conclusions: In the examined case we described the contemporary management of a myocardial infraction event, wherein the patient was advised to stop smoking, form a consistent regular exercising physical activity regime, put more conscious effort into having a healthy diet, and reduce stress levels as much as possible.
