    A retrospective study has been carried out on the necropsy material from 30 patients who have died after a clinically diagnosed myocardial infarction. This study has been undertaken to compare the reliability of the fluorescence of infarcted myocardium when stained by haematoxylin and eosin and an adjacent section stained by the haematoxylin basic fuchsin picric acid (HBFP) method to detect early ischaemia. The results showed that the fluorescence technique is reliable, reproducible and coincides with the findings obtained by HBFP stain.
