Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
A single heart attack can be responsible for multiple blocks as he has suffered.It is more commonly due to raised cholesterol levels causing thickening of the arteries of the heart so that even a small clot can lead to arterial blockage. Any symptoms are not necessary as sometimes the attacks are silent.
