The rib cage is a bony structure that protects the lungs inside. Heartburn is the main symptom of gastro-oesophageal reflux disease. See separate leaflet called Heart Attack (Myocardial Infarction) for more details. This means that blood flow through the artery can be restored. A blood clot may form if there is some atheroma within the lining of the artery. This means that the part of the heart muscle supplied by this artery loses its blood and oxygen supply. Plaques of atheroma can form gradually over years.
