In brief: Timing

There are many ways and there are indicated ones depending on timing and findings.
Heart attack is usually due to small clots in areas where there is clogging of the blood vessels, can rarely be due to spasm of the vessels (as in drugs). Treatment is dependent on opening up of the area by dissolution of the clot or opening up of the vessels i.e., reversing the cause.
