Another thing I don't understand

Is it really still called a "heart attack" when you have heart failure that is based on a foreign object piercing (or in this case, I guess "migrating into") heart tissue? I mean, someone shot in the head is not described as dying from "massive brain haemorrage" even though that is what it technically would be. (HT Elaine for the analogy)
