What is the difference between angina and myocardial infarction?

Angina should not be confused with myocardial infarction. Both cause chest pain, the difference is based on the occupancy of the coronary vessel responsible for carrying oxygen to the heart causing reduced blood flow. In angina lack of oxygen is temporary; it causes characteristic pain, but there is no death of heart cells. In myocardial infarction there is cell death making the injury irreversible.
