An extensive collagen skeleton in the myocardium is clearly demonstrable by scanning electron microscopy. This system mechanically connects myocytes to contiguous myocytes, connects myocytes to contiguous capillaries, and is responsible for orienting myocytes into anatomical units. The extent and location of the system involves it in a variety of physical parameters of the heart under both normal and abnormal conditions. The myocyte to myocyte collagen struts may provide for sarcomere alignment… CONTINUE READING
