Figure 3: Histopathological findings of rat hearts in the chronic phase (8 weeks). H and E stains of hearts were taken at 400. Myocardial tissue and vascular bed are seen normal (a and f). Acute inflammation and accumulation of inflammatory cells (b), atheroma plaque associated with intraplaque angiogenesis and macrophage infiltration (c), cardiac myocyte necrosis (d) in the myocardial tissue are observed. Mild inflammation and the decreased infiltration of inflammatory cells are also discerned (e). (a): Control, (b-d): Radiation, (e and f): Hesperidin + R
