Three-dimensional observation of the microcirculation of the tendon was readily and clearly demonstrated by preparing methyl methacrylate casts and observing them under the scanning electron microscope. In the muscles blood vessels made a network like a ladder surrounding every muscle fibre. The fibrous digital sheath had blood vessels made in a fine meshed(More)
(1) Repairing surface structure of transected digital flexor tendons of hens were studied by scanning electron microscopy. One week after a simple suture, fibrous materials probably of fibrin and exudated blood cells were attached on the surface. After two weeks, lining cells enmeshed with fine fibrils covered most of the surface. After three weeks,(More)
A comparative study has been made of the surface structure of the tenosynovium in flexor tendon apparatus obtained from hens and humans. Three different parts of the visceral, and parietal layers, and vincula were observed by scanning electron microscopy. Lining cells of the visceral layer are relatively flat and enmeshed with filamentous fibrils, while(More)
Fifty-three patients with surgically confirmed lumbar disc herniation at 55 levels were studied retrospectively to compare the diagnostic accuracy of high-field strength surface coil magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) with that of myelography. Disc herniation was classified into three groups according to MRI findings, namely, unilateral single-disc(More)
