    A heart attack, also known as a myocardial infarction, usually occurs when a blood clot forms inside a coronary artery at the site of an atherosclerotic plaque. The blood clot severely limits or completely cuts off blood flow to part of the heart.

This constriction, called vasospasm, can occur in an artery that is only slightly narrowed by atherosclerosis or even in...
