What Does an Aging Heart Look Like? – American Heart Association

I found this illustration in an  issue of American Heart Association’s Circulation Research Journal. I thought it provided a fascinating look at what happens to the heart during aging.

The Caption in the journal said: Age-dependent changes to cardiovascular tissues. Both the heart and vasculature undergo numerous alterations during aging as a result of deregulation of molecular longevity pathways, leading to compromised function. Illustration credit: Cosmocyte/Ben Smith.
