Complications of MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION- Heart Attack
Complications of heart attack are often related to the damage done to your heart during a heart attack. Most common problems arising due to damage to heart are:
- Abnormal heart rhythms (arrhythmias). Electrical "short circuits" can develop if your heart muscle is damaged from a heart attack. These can cause abnormal heart rhythms, some of which can be serious, even fatal.
- Heart failure. It is a condition where the damaged tissue in your heart can't do an adequate job of pumping blood out of your heart. Reduced pumping activity reduces blood flow to tissues and organs and may produce shortness of breath, fatigue, and swelling in your ankles and feet.
- Heart rupture. A hole in a part of wall of heart can occur due to rupture of areas of heart muscle weakened by a heart attack. This rupture is often fatal.
- Valve problems. Valves of the heart get damaged during a heart attack and may develop severe, life-threatening leakage problems.
