Core Tip

Core tip: This is a case report about a young man who were ultimately diagnosed with myocardial infarction with nonobstructive coronary arteries, but initially diagnosed with acute myocardial infarction (AMI). AMI is characterized by chest pain as well as cardiac troponin I and electrocardiography changes. In recent years, clinical researchers have used “MINOCA” to characterize myocardial infarction with non-obstructive coronary arteries. As far as we know, no report has documented this type in a young patient after choledocholithiasis by endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography.
