A cross-section of a heart post heart attack. This is a cross-section through the main pumping chamber of the heart. The heart muscle has been deprived of oxygen and the patient suffered a large heart attack or myocardial infarction. He survived, but much of the heart tissue was damaged. This is a key specimen in our collection for teaching our students about heart disease.
