Kadesjö E, et al. – Researchers investigated causes of death in patients with myocardial injury in a cohort of over 22,000 individuals. A total of 3,853 patients with myocardial injury were identified and classified into the following groups: type 1 myocardial infarction, type 2 myocardial infarction, and non-ischemic acute and chronic myocardial injury.

The researchers noted that their findings emphasize the requirement for screening people without known heart diseases who present with non-ischemic myocardial injury or type 2 myocardial infarction.
