An infarct is tissue that died due to a compromised blood supply. The vascular compromise can be either arterial or venous.

Pathologic classification

  • Red (hemorrhagic).
  • White (non-hemorrhagic).


A misnomer

Some things in medicine are misnamed. Maternal floor infarct is one of many examples.
