Regeneration processes in human myocardium after acute ischaemia —quantitative determination of DNA, cell number and collagen content


We examined and compared 22 human hearts (6 normal hearts, 4 with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and 12 after acute ischaemia) for their DNA and collagen content and their cell number. A positive correlation between total heart weight and DNA content was demonstrated in all hearts. The relative DNA content decreased and the rate of polyploidy increased in the… (More)
