Many members must have heard this word, as the cause of
the vague term "heart attack". But it seems unlikely that
many would know the relation of the word to the name of
the trivial comedy called "a farce", which comes from a
verb meaning to "stuff". The comedy has too much clumsy
humor stuffed into it.
The blood vessels in pathology slides of the heart of a man who died of myocardial infarction look stuffed with blood cells and fibrin. The result is that part of the heart
muscle is deprived of oxygen, and the cells die.
