Koronare Herzkrankheit und Herzinfarkt

  • Erland Erdmann
  • Gerhard Riecker


Die koronare Herzkrankheit ist die Manifestation der Atherosklerose an den Koronararterien. Sie kann über einen multifaktoriellen Prozeß, der zur Myokardischämie führt, als Angina pectoris, Myokardinfarkt, Herzrhythmusstörung, plötzlicher Herztod oder Herzinsuffizienz auftreten. Der Krankheitsverlauf kann klinisch stumm sein.
