Emily and Sol discuss risk factors, presentation, and treatment for myocardial infarctions in children. MIs in children are rare, and usually due to a congenital anomaly or post-operative complications from cardiac anomaly, or due to acquired inflammatory conditions like Kawasaki. These children should undergo EKG and echo. Initial treatment is with aspirin. Cardiac catheterization is indicated if the cause of the MI is a clot.
