Fibrinous clots in heart
(Post mortem clots are of 2 types-
a. Black currant jelly- when blood clots rapidly, a soft, lumpy, dark-red, slippery, moist clot is produced.
b. Chicken-fat- when RBCs sediment before blood coagulates, a pale or bright yellow layer of serum & fibrin is seen over the clot as seen in the previous type. The fibrin clot is elastic. These post-mortem clots are loosely attached or not at all attached to the underlying wall of the heart, and there are no lines of Zahn.)
