Role and mechanism of cardiac insulin resistance in occurrence of heart failure caused by myocardial hypertrophy


Figure 2. Myocardial cell ultrastructure. In sham group myocardia, mitochondrial membranes and matrix particles were typically intact, and the mitochondrial ridge was usually continuous. In AAC group myocardia, mitochondrial swelling, matrix loss, and even vacuolation were observed. The inner and outer membranes were also damaged and incomplete.
