In brief: Heart stroke

A heart stroke is also known as a myocardial infarction or heart attack.
A blood clot forms in a heart blood vessel. This cuts off flow to a part of the heart and that part dies. This can cause pain, rhythm and pumping disturbances. These things can result in disability or death.
