HEART - Myocardial infarct (days)

Two slices of heart muscle showing an extensive infarct in the intra-ventricular septum. There are areas of haemorrhage close to the endocardium of the left ventricle, with soft-looking grey-brown areas related to these. The endocardium appears thickened. Towards one end of the infarct there is scar tissue. The history of this patient is not known but the macroscopic appearance of the infarct suggests that it is 2-3 days old.
