What Causes A Dead Spot In The Heart

Answer

hello Gail

Dead spots are usually caused by a block which keeps oxygenated blood from reaching the tissue. An example of a dead spot in the heart would be an infarction. There are different types of infarction. One of which, called a myocardial infarction, is located in the heart and caused by a heart attack. We have some (possibly more accurate) information else where on our website, http://www.healthcentral.com/ency/408/000195.html

I hope this is helpful
