Why might a thrombus in a coranary artery cause sudden death?

A thrombus is a blood clot. The coronary arteries are the blood vessels that supply the heart muscle itself with blood. A clot in the arteries will decrease blood flow to that muscle. This is also called a heart attack. The degree of blockage in the heart and amount of time to re-perfusion treatment will dictate how much of the heart muscle dies. If a large enough portion of the heart dies, the heart will be unable to supply the body with an adequate amount of blood and the patient will die. It is spelled corOnary.
