Causes of heart attack
Most heart attacks are caused by the presence of a clot in the coronary artery, blocking blood and oxygen supply to the heart. Often this episode generates an irregular heartbeat (called arrhythmia) that seriously affects the heart's pumping ability. If not treated quickly (within a few hours) the affected heart muscle will suffer permanent damage.
