    00:00 So let's wrap up the video series.

    00:03 In a healthy heart that is not experience in MI, the walls of the heart are strong and flexible like we saw in that first drawing.

    00:11 The structure of the dead tissue is gradually replaced with granulation tissue and then scar tissue.

    00:18 That is really amazing that your body can do that.

    00:21 Now because the scar tissue is in contractile the heart is not as efficient and the patient isn't increased risk for congestive heart failure in the future.

    00:31 Thank you for watching our video today.
