Cardiac histology of (200 mg GE + ISO) treated rat (Group 4): (a) sacrificed on 31st day revealed highly pronounced edema with inflammation and nuclei aggregation (pointed with yellow arrow) in cardiomyocytes and distorted myofibrils (pointed with black arrow), (b) sacrificed on 46th day shows less prominent cardiac necrosis with less pronounced distortion of myofibril structure (pointed with black arrow) and less aggregation of nuclei (pointed with green arrow), (c) sacrificed on 61st day showed approximately similar looking cardiac histoarchitecture as normal control rats with normal structure of myofibrils (pointed with black arrow) and regular and central distribution of nuclei (pointed with green arrow) but some portions were still damaged
