Histopathological localization of atherosclerotic lesions of the human coronary artery. Panel (a) shows the bright luminal fibrous layers in the atherosclerotic plaque with the resolution obtained together with the minimal obstruction to the coronary lumen caused by atherosclerotic plaque (H&E, 200 Ҳ). . Panel (b) Magnification × 200, H&E stain. An un-normal coronary wall. Note thickened media, which contained cholesterol crystals within the tunica media together with lesions with fibromuscular fibrous. Panel (c): Photomicrograph of thick part of atheroma and shows extracellular lipid forms a confluent core in the musculoelastic layer of eccentric adaptive thickening that is always present in this location and the lipid core also contains cholesterol crystals and dark staining aggregates of microcrystalline calcium (H&E, 400 Ҳ). Panel (d) demonstrates severe atheromatous lesions containing abundant lymphocytes cells infiltration and the deposition of lipids and infiltration of lipid-laden foamy cells in the tunica intima and tunica media (H&E, 400 Ҳ)
