Fig. 8

Larger infarct size in embolism groups than the BO group. a TTC staining of serial short axis section confirmed the formation of myocardial infarction at anterior septal and anterior wall myocardium. The red arrows indicate the infarct zone (the interval of coordinate paper is 5 mm). b The tissue from the infarct zone (black box) was further confirmed as proliferation of fibrous tissue compared with remote zone (white box) by Sirius red staining and polarized light observation. Scale bars = 50 rom. c Semi-quantitative assessment of infarct size in the three groups
