Silastic E RTV silicone was used to produce tracheobronchial cast for use in an undergraduate human anatomy course. Following air-drying, the trachea and lungs were injected with E RTV silicone and allowed to cure for 24 hr. The parenchyma was then removed from the tracheobronchial cast by maceration and boiling and then whitened in a 10% solution of(More)
The arterial supply of the ovary and oviduct is provided by the ovarian artery, cranial oviductal artery, accessory cranial oviductal artery, middle oviductal artery, caudal oviductal artery and the medial and lateral vaginal arteries. These arteries supply various regions of the oviduct and are branches of either the left cranial renal artery, left(More)
The respiratory tracts of seven grey short-tailed opossums were histologically examined. Six opossums were prepared by perfusion with buffered formalin. Opossum seven was perfused with gluteraldehyde. Samples taken from the respiratory passages and lungs of specimens 1-6 were stained with haematoxylin and eosin. A mixture of methylene and azure blue was(More)
Dilated canine hearts were used to teach undergraduate students internal and external cardiac anatomy. The specimens were dilated using hydrostatic pressure and then fixed using 5% formalin. These specimens provided the students with an alternative to prepackaged embalmed hearts and anatomical models for studying the external and internal cardiac anatomy.(More)

The trabecula septomarginalis dextra is a structure routinely mentioned in veterinary anatomy. While there are several studies on the morphology of this structure in select animal species, there are some characteristics that are not adequately described. The purpose of this study was to describe and classify this trabecula in the domestic dog using the(More)
Three reproductively quiescent female emus (Dromaius novaehollandiae) were embalmed with 10% formalin solution. The reproductive tract was dissected and described. The reproductive tract consists of an ovary and oviduct situated on the left side of the abdominal cavity. The left ovary is dark brown to black in colour with follicles covering the ventral(More)

The limbic system is a complicated region of the brain to teach in an undergraduate neuroanatomy course. The students often struggled with the complexity and interconnection of the structures of this system to other cortical regions. The following is a description of two dissections that used preserved horse brains to help students visualize the major(More)

The canine right atrioventricular valve cusps are anchored to papillary muscles by chordae tendineae. During ventricular systole, these tendineae keep the cusps from being pushed into the atrium. While this is the general description for chordae tendineae, several researchers have briefly documented chordae tendineae in animal and human hearts that do not(More)
