Micrographs showing the three major epicardial coronary arteries from patients from the who died of a sudden cardiac ischemic death. Panel (a) demonstrates severe atheromatous lesions, calcium deposits of luminal atherosclerotic plaques with hemorrhage, hyaline material in the tunica media (H&E, 200 Ҳ). Panel (b); Photomicrograph of a coronary plaque (H&E stain) showing intraplaque hemorrhage with the necrotic core with a form of calcification that result in irregular nodules of calcium (H&E, 200 Ҳ). Panel (c) indicates a prevalently fibrous plaque characterized by a necrotic core associated with a thick fibrous and this photograph of coronary plaques demonstrates multiple necrotic cores (H&E, 400 Ҳ). Panel (d) shows occasionally lymphoplasmacyte-rich infiltrates and fibroproliferative tissue together with areas of free cholesterol crystals (H&E, 400 Ҳ)
