Abstract [en]

The definition of myocardial infarction (MI) has evolved over the last decades, from rather simple criteriain the first World Health Organization documents, to a five-category classification in the 2007 and 2012universal definitions. In particular, the introduction of sensitive and cardiospecific biomarkers in clinicalpractice has had a clear impact in this regard, as well as a more differentiated perspective on thepathophysiology of myocardial injury, in particular in the setting of invasive coronary procedures. Theimplications of the revisions of the definition criteria of MI have been important as they have affected ourperception of MI as a disease state. In addition, they have contributed to an improved identification ofat-risk patients warranting customized treatment regimens. However, several aspects of the definitioncriteria of MI are still debated and will likely be subject to modifications in forthcoming updates of theuniversal definition.
