Characters :: The Muscle Infarction Affliction
- Infarction information
- What House says about the leg problem:
- A patient: "What made you a cripple?"
House: "I had an infarction."
The patient: "A heart attack?"
House: "It's what happens when the blood flow is obstructed. If it's in the heart it's a heart attack. If it's in the lungs it's a pulmonary embolism. If it's in the brain it's a stroke. I had it in my thigh muscles."
The patient: "Wasn't there something they could do?"
House: "There was plenty they could do, if they made the right diagnosis, but the only symptom was pain. Not many people get to experience muscle death."
The patient: "Did you think you were dying?"
House: "I hoped I was dying." [#101]
