Figure 25. Cross sections of the heart revealing marked concentric hypertrophy of the left ventricle. The right ventricle is also hypertrophied.
Figure 26. Myocytolysis. The empty spaces represent dead myocytes. Causative factors include localized reperfusion injury due to transient microvascular spasm
Figure 27. Microfibrillar cardiomyopathy. Loosely tangled, slightly curvilinear fibrils with a diameter of 15 - 20 nm are present in the interstitium between two myocytes
