Younger, Female Heart Attack Survivors Face Higher Risk Of Mental Stress-Induced Myocardial Ischemia

Younger, Female Heart Attack Survivors Face Higher Risk Of Mental Stress-Induced Myocardial IschemiaYoung and middle-aged women who have recently had a heart attack might be at a higher risk for restricted blood flow to the heart due to mental stress, according to a small new study. Researchers from Emory University found that mental stress-induced myocardial ischemia is more common among women under age 50 than men in the same age group. Myocardial ischemia occurs when the coronary arteries are blocked partially or completely, limiting flow of blood to the heart. This can lead to heart attack or abnormal heart rhythms, according to the Mayo Clinic.
