AbstractComparison of mid- and near-infrared spectra of control and infarcted rat ventricular tissue reveals the presence of absorptions in infarcted tissue which are highly characteristic of collagen, indicating large scale deposition of type I collagen in the myocardium following infarction. These results demonstrate that IR spectroscopy may be used to rapidly monitor the modifications of the extracellular matrix associated with myocardial infarction.
