State Budgetary Educational Institution, "Far-East State Medical University" of the Ministry of Health of the Russian Federation, Muravjeva-Amurskogo 35, Khabarovsk 680000

Keywords: type-2 myocardial infarction, acute coronary syndrome, trimetazidine

DOI: 10.18087/rhj.2016.6.2285

The article provides characteristics of type 2 MI. Based on current reports, the author presents information about the prevalence and pathogenesis of type 2 MI as well as about diseases and clinical conditions underlying oxygen and energy imbalance, which results in myocardial necrosis. Also, this review characterizes the clinical course and outcomes of type 2 MI compared to type 1 MI; touches upon issues of diagnostics and therapeutic tactics; and discusses a possibility of using myocardial cytoprotection with trimetazidine.
