HARP-MINOCA
Multi-modality imaging with optical coherence tomography (OCT) and cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) identified an underlying cause in 84.5% of women with myocardial infarction with non-obstructive coronary arteries (MINOCA), according to findings from the HARP-MINOCA study. Identification of the aetiology of MINOCA is feasible and could guide medical therapy for secondary prevention, according to the authors [1]. Prof. Harmony Reynolds (New York University Grossman School of Medicine, USA) presented the results of the HARP-MINOCA study (NCT02905357), designed to identify the cause of MINOCA. Accounting for up to 10% of MI, MINOCA is 3 times more prevalent in women than men and is overrepresented in women of colour, Prof. Reynolds explained. HARP-MINOCA was a prospective, multicentre, international, diagnostic observational study that included 301 female patients wi...
