oa Central African Journal of Medicine - The assessment of muscular hypertrophy and endarteritis obliterans in pulmonary arteries

Volume 4, Issue 9

It has been shown that false histological impression s about vascular disease arise, where vessels of the lung which have contracted after death are taken to represent conditions during life, in which circumstances hypertrophy of the tunica media can he simulated and the extent of intimal thickening exaggerated. Mistakes of this kind can be avoided if vessels are examined after distending them with a radio-opaque mass to an extent likely to have been present during life.
