Posterior Ventricular and Septal Fibrosis
Posterior Ventricular and Septal Fibrosis

This medical exhibit features with a posterior silhouette of the upper body of a generic black female revealing a posterior view of the heart within the chest. A dotted line is drawn horizontally through the ventricles to provide an orientation to the plane of section in the following image. Also, one large cross-sectional view of the heart provides a cut-away view from above revealing the muscular walls of the left and right ventricles. The anterior aspect of the heart is normal with thick healthy cardiac muscle. The posterior aspect of the heart illustrates the findings described in the autopsy report. This will includes the 2 inch area of subendocardial fibrosis of the posterior left ventricle and septum and the pale discoloration of the myocardium due to an old myocardial infarction.
