what is st elevation myocardial infarction?

ST elevation...

Heart_problems
Many believe that an ST elevation myocardial infarction means that it is a transmural infarct (involving the whole thickness of the myocardium). Some people refer to NSTEMI (non ST elevation myocardial infarction) as non-transmural infarct (not involving the whole thickness of the myocardium). These definitions are somewhat debatable but thought you may be interested.

Severe Heart Attack

Heart attacks - the lay term for myocardial infarction - comes in two levels of severity..non-ST-Elevation (NSTEMI) and ST-Elevation (STEMI) which refer to changes on an EKG and broadly reflect if an arterial occlusion is total or subtotal.

Any new latest findings in treatment for st elevation myocardial infarction?

STEMI

Infarct
Most recent thing I've seen is a report that stem cell treatment didn't improve ventricular function. This is still very preliminary however.

Dr. SG Erman answered:

reason for ST segment elevation in myocardial infarction?

Electrical

Cardiac_arrest
a heart attack damages muscles in the heart. the flow of the electrical current throughout the wall changes when having to go around the damaged muscle, resulting in certain EKG changes, since EKG's show the path of electrical current in the heart. There are different changes, de[ending on which part of the muscle is damaged.

Dr. Alon Gitig answered:

What is the meaning of ST elevation?

Refers to EKG change

Heart_attack
Refers to changes seen on the EKG of a person suffering a "transmural" heart attack. I.e., in cases where a coronary artery becomes suddently completely occluded by a clot, cutting off blood flow to the entire thickness of the heart muscle in the wall supplied by the artery, a portion of the EKG called the "ST segment" rises substantially. This is the basis of immediate diagnosis of a heart attack

What is the definition or description of: ST elevation?

See below

Inflammation_of_lining_of_the_heart
ST elevations refers to a finding on an electrocardiogram, wherein the trace in the ST segment is abnormally high above the isoelectric line. EKG ST segment elevation is usually attributed to impending infarction, but can also be due to pericarditis or vasospastic (variant) angina and early repolarization. In some healthy young adults, a form of ST elevation can be normal.
