Dilated cardiomyopathy in rats


Dear Netters,


Does anyone have any experience with the histology and/or pathologic evaluation of cardiomyopathy in rats- specifically chamber dilation?  We are researching the best way to cut the heart- cross sections through the entire heart or longitudinally to show the atria and ventricles.  Also, what stains would be helpful to show this cardiomyopathy.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.
