RE: [Histonet] Re: stains for myocardial injury

From:"Sebree Linda A."


I used to do HBFP for MIs in the Ordovician Period.  I believe it was
developed at the Mayo clinic in that same era but fell out of favor when
it was determined that one could easily manipulate the outcome to be
positive or negative by the differentiation step.

I remember reading articles about the hematoxylin / basic fuchsin /
acid stain for recently infarcted myocardium, some time late in the
Period I think. 

I've never seen one, but there was a question about the stain on the
pathology board examination (American Board of Pathology) when I took it
November 1971. I remember it because it was the only question on
contemporary that was on the exam.

Gayle Callis, if you post the procedure in electronic form, I'd like to
a copy. I can't remember whether it's done from neutral buffered
formalin or 
whether it requires a special fixative. The Harris (mercuric oxide)
could make a difference - it does in the Engel-Cunningham variant of the

Gomori trichrome stain, used for frozen sections of skeletal muscle.
