Caption: Heart scarring. Light micrograph of a section through heart tissue showing scar tissue being formed about 10 days after a heart attack (myocardial infarction). An infarction is tissue death (necrosis) caused by blockage of the tissue's blood supply (ischaemia). Here, the white blood cells (leucocyres, dark dots) are clearing away the necrotic tissue (deep pink) while granulated scar tissue with new blood vessels are being laid down in its place.
