The infarcts have a gelatinous texture which represents a healing phase of the infarct aproximatelly 7 days of evolution. The red discoloration areas represent granulation tissue. Bordering the infarcts there are subtle areas of white gray discoloration which represent areas of early scar formation. Also note the infarct in the anterior papillary muscle.
