Specimens from the left ventricular myocardium of 10 rats that had been exposed to subcutaneously administered hexane for 30 days were morphometrically and morphologically examined. Other than the presence of occasional necrotic fibres in hexane-treated animals, there was little difference in the histological appearance of myofibres in control or experimental specimens. There was a slight reduction in the average diameter of cardiac myofibres after exposure to hexane. Pathological… CONTINUE READING
