The microcirculation of the human colon with special reference to the differences in microvascular architecture between the proximal and distal colon was studied by scanning electron microscopy with vascular corrosion casting technique. The subsurface capillary networks of the ascending colon were honeycomb-like and multi-layered, with an average number of capillary layers per capillary loop of 3.28 +/- 1.10 (mean +/- SD). Whereas, those of the sigmoid colon were almost single-layered, and the… CONTINUE READING
