Infarction generally refers to myocardial infarction
(heart of the muscle). However, infarction can affect any vascularized organ of the body when blood circulation "feeding" the cells
of the organ is interrupted.
A myocardial infarction (MI), or heart attack in common parlance, is cell death following a vascularization failure and thus a failure to oxygenate the cells. Generally, MI is due to a blood clot, or to deposits on the lining of a coronary artery
These are called a cerebral infarction, another name for an ischemic stroke
These are called a mesenteric infarction, in the intestine.
It's about lungs.
