ischaemic heart disease

(redirected from Myocardial ischaemia)

is·che·mic heart dis·ease

(is-kē'mik hahrt di-zēz')
A general term for diseases of the heart caused by insufficient blood supply to the myocardium, e.g., atherosclerotic coronary artery disease, angina pectoris, unstable angina, and myocardial infarction.
Synonym(s): ischaemic heart disease, ischaemic heart disease.

coronary artery disease

also known as coronary heart disease or ischaemic heart disease. Includes angina pectoris and myocardial infarction. A deficient supply of oxygenated blood to the myocardium causes central chest pain of varying intensity that may radiate to arms and jaw. The blood vessels are usually narrowed by atheromatous plaques. Commonest cause of sudden death in sport in those over 45 years. See also angina pectoris, cardiac rehabilitation.
ischaemic heart disease myocardial ischaemia (e.g. due to coronary artery, atheroma, thrombosis, embolism or arteritis; thyrotoxicosis; myocardial hypertrophy [secondary to hypertension], aortic stenosis)
