Figure 5: Histopathological findings of rat hearts in the chronic phase (8 weeks). Acid fast stains of hearts were taken at ×400 magnification and mast cells seem dark blue points. Normal appearance is observed in the myocardium at the control group (a). Mast cell infiltration appears minimal to moderate at the epicardial (b) and endocardial (e) of the ventricle. Acute mast cells infiltration is recognized in the myocardial (d) and endocardial (c) layers of ventricle. (f) Myocardial tissue is characterized by mild infiltration of mast cells. (a): Control, (b-d): Radiation, (e and f): Hesperidin + R
