Blood clotting responsible for 50% of heart attack and 90% of stroke.

According to Majid Ali (a pathologist); When death occurs within six to eight hours of myocardial infarction, no acute coronary thrombotic occlusions are found at autopsy in more than 75 percent of cases; however, when death occurs after 48 hours, acute thrombotic occlusion is almost always found. The range of frequency of acute thrombotic coronary occlusion in survivors of out-of-the-hospital cardiac arrest extends from 36 percent as determined by angiography1 to 95 percent in autopsy studies.2
