Myocardial Infarction - Acute - Contraction Band Necrosis

Contraction band necrosis showing transverse hypereosinophilic bands alternating with pale granular spaces along the length of the myocytes. The transverse bands result from overlapping of hypercontracted sarcomeres. For comparison the myocytes in the lower portion of the field do not show contraction band necrosis.
