This monograph attempts to review the known facts and also theories about the functional histology and biochemistry of the myocardium. This is done by condensing numerous scientific papers from the literature. Their selection is liberal but extensive, more for support of views expressed than for the presentation of accepted facts. Still they make for interesting reading. Many opinions and recommendations based upon them are rather provocative, for example, that many hypothetical disturbances of myocardial metabolism occur and may be the cause of heart failure in cited cases of myocardial infarction or other cases of chronic rheumatic heart disease.
