    Special Issue on Advanced Research in Myocardial Infarction


    Myocardial infarction (MI), commonly known as a heart attack, occurs when blood flow decreases or stops to a part of the heart, causing damage to the heart muscle. Most MIs occur due to coronary artery disease. Risk factors include high blood pressure, smoking, diabetes, lack of exercise, obesity, high blood cholesterol, poor diet, and excessive alcohol intake, among others. The complete blockage of a coronary artery caused by a rupture of an atherosclerotic plaque is usually the underlying mechanism of an MI.


    In this special issue, we intend to invite front-line researchers and authors to submit original research and review articles on Advanced Research in Myocardial Infarction. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

    • Causes and mechanism
    • Symptoms and treatment
    • Prevention, care and control
    • Risk factors
    • Drug therapy
    • Associated with surgery
    • Acute Myocardial Infarction
    • STEMI
    • Clinical studies

    Authors should read over the journal’s For Authors carefully before submission. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal’s Paper Submission System.


    Please kindly notice that the “Special Issue” under your manuscript title is supposed to be specified and the research field “Special Issue – Advanced Research in Myocardial Infarction should be chosen during your submission.
