The article reports on the occurrence of acute myocardial infarction at pre-existing mild stenosis which is based on the multidetector computed tomography. It includes information on the case of a 75-year-old man with three months of effort angina. According to the report, the evolution time from mild stenotic lesions to infarction related arteries can be shorter than expected.
