The distal segment of the human male urethra, in particular the fossa navicularis, was studied with light- and electron microscopy as well as by means of histochemical and immunocytochemical methods. The fossa navicularis of the urethra contains a circumscribed zone of extremely thick, non-keratinized stratified squamous epithelium composed of cells(More)
The short female urethra contains mucosal zones varying in extent. The proximal part, starting at the urinary bladder, is lined by a typical urothelium. It consists of several cell layers, which are covered by particularly large cells. After only a few millimeters this urothelium gives way to a stratified non-keratinized squamous epithelium containing(More)
In 20 autoptically obtained testes from men of various ages, 250-290 testicular lobules per testicle could be recognized by preparation with a stereomicroscope. The most appropriate technique was the fixation of the testes in 10% formol for at least 14 days and a following dehydration in a series of increasing concentrations of alcohol. Using other methods(More)
In 35 male and 48 female cadavers always a "corpus adiposum praesymphysiale" was identified. By means of macroscopic preparations and plastinated crossections of human bodies in the regions of the mons pubis a flat flat-pad (corpus adiposum), covered by connective tissue, was found, which can be demarcated from the subcutaneous adipose tissue. This fat-pad(More)
