After an acute MI, LGE is useful to assess size, extension, transmurality of the infarcted
zone, and the presence of MVO.
Cardioprotective activity of Amaranthus viridis effect on serum marker enzymes, cardiac troponin and antioxidant system in experimental myocardial infarcted
The study performed at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine found that treatment of infarcted
cardiac tissue with AmnioFix and EpiFix patches immediately after infarction reduced the size of fibrotic scarring eight weeks after treatment, compared to controls treated with saline alone.
Eplerenone attenuates cardiac dysfunction and oxidative stress in [beta]-receptor stimulated myocardial infarcted

Re-establishing cerebral perfusion is only of benefit if brain tissue is not completely infarcted
The related experiments had proved that NBP had the pharmacological effects of reconstructing the microcirculation, reducing the infarcted
lesions after focal cerebral ischemia, and reducing the degrees of neurological injuries, although the exact mechanism was still unclear.
They administered isoproterenol (100 mg/kg body weight) to rats for inducing myocardial infarction, and then the myocardial infarcted
rats (rats with raised levels of cardiac troponin-T, cholesterol, triglycerides, and free fatty acids in serum and higher ST-segments in electrocardiogram) were studied to evaluate the shielding effects of sinapic acid [100, 101].
For forelimb flexion, a normal rat will extend both forelimbs toward the surface when it is held by the tail above a flat surface whereas infarcted
animals will flex the paralytic forelimb.
A small splenic infarction was seen, but the infarcted
volume was less than 10% of total splenic volume (Figure 4(a)).
Myocardial viability and perfusion of the infarcted
region and left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF), were measured using F-18-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission computed tomography (F-18-FDG-PET) and 99mTc-sestamibi single- photon emission computed tomography (99mTc-SPECT), and two-dimensional echocardiography respectively.
Tagged magnetic resonance imaging, the gold standard technique for deformation analysis, correlates well with non-Doppler two-dimensional strain measurements, both in normal myocardial segments and infarcted
No histologic evidence of intervillous inflammation, infarcted
areas, or chorioamnionitis was observed in the placenta of women with loiasis, and no microfilariae were observed in any examined cord blood samples.
Infarcts were noted on gross examination and extent of placental infarct was recorded in terms of percentage of infarcted
area (nil/less than 5%, 5-25%, 25-50%, greater than 50%) and their pattern of distribution (focal/multifocal/diffuse).
There were persistent filling defects in the left renal arterial system and infarcted
regions of the left kidney.
