The present study demonstrates light and electron microscopic changes in neurons in the myenteric plexus of the rat ileum following four-hour ischemia. Macroscopically, an intestinal constriction occurred at the damaged portion at three weeks after ischemia; the segment oral to the constriction markedly swelled at four weeks. In light microscopy, at three weeks after ischemia, the myenteric neurons appeared spongy or foamy, containing many vacuoles in their somatic cytoplasm. At four weeks, the… CONTINUE READING
