An electron microscopic study of cardiac lesions induced in rats by isoproterenol and by repeated stress is described, and a possible pathogenetic mechanism of idiopathic cardiomyopathy is proposed. Three types of cardiac cells could be roughly differentiated according to the structure and arrangement of myofibrils: 1) normo-type with normal structure and… CONTINUE READING
