Endomyocardial fibrosis

Fibrosis

[fahy-broh-sis]
Fibrosis is the formation or development of excess fibrous connective tissue in an organ or tissue as a reparative or reactive process, as opposed to a formation of fibrous tissue as a normal constituent of an organ or tissue.

The term is also sometimes used to describe a normal healing process, but this usage is less common.
