Myocardial infarction is one of the leading causes of death worldwide, although it is a situation that may be preventable.

Myocardial infarction carries a high mortality due to the obstruction of the passage of blood in a coronary artery. And although this moment is not foreseeable and usually takes everyone by surprise, the reality is that a myocardial infarction is also preventable.

How to prevent an acute myocardial infarction?
