In brief: Heart attack

Inferior myocardial infarction is a heart attack on the bottom of the heart.
This portion of the heart is frequently served by the right coronary artery but occasionally by the circumflex coronary artery. When the artery closes, the bottom of the heart does not get any blood, and the muscle of the heart is injured.
