meaning of Acute coronary syndromes

Acute coronary syndromes meaning in Medical Dictionary

A spectrum of conditions concerning upper body disquiet or any other symptoms due to lack of air to the heart muscle mass (the myocardium). The unification among these manifestations of coronary artery disease under just one term reflects the understanding that these are caused by an equivalent pathophysiology (series of pathologic events) characterized by erosion, fissuring, or rupture of a pre-existing plaque, causing thrombosis (clotting) in the coronary arteries and reduced blood circulation toward heart muscle mass.
