Can there be myocardial infarction during pregnancy?

As the age of the pregnant woman increases, the risk of acute myocardial infarction increases (especially for women older than 45-50 years). In addition to other factors, pregnancy increases the risk of a heart attack by 3 to 4 times. The frequency of MI during pregnancy ranges from 3 to 100 per 100,000 births. Maternal mortality reaches 11%, and the associated fetal mortality is 9%.
