In brief: Several

Most people recover with little complications.
Some suffer cardiac arrest and die suddenly. A small group have major myocardial infarctions resulting in substantial and disablling damage to the heart. Shortness of breath and loss of energy can occur. Recurrent myocardial infarctions are not uncommon in those who continue to have high risk factors that are not addressed.

In brief: Life&Death

Having a myocardial infarction should be avoided.
The proximate cause is epicardial adipose tissue (eat) which happens with visceral adipose tissue (vat).
