Understanding the impact of heart attack type on hospital-level outcomes
New research in the Journal of the American Heart Association from a UNC team including Cardiology research fellow Dr. Sameer Arora and Cardiology faculty members Dr. Matt Cavender and Division Chief Dr. Rick Stouffer suggests that it may be of benefit to not categorize type 2 myocardial infarction (MI) under the general umbrella of non-ST-elevation myocardial infarction. The research suggests it may be better to differentiate it from type 1 MI patients clinically.
