Experimental myocardial infarction is a model of cardiac overload in which part of the cardiac muscle is removed. The resulting left ventricle insufficiency depends on the size of the infarct and time. The infarcted area remodels, due to proteolytic activity of inflammatory cells and collagenogenesis from fibroblast activity. The phenotype of the residual… CONTINUE READING
