Histometric studies are useful for correlating mechanical properties of tissues with morphological characteristics. However, fixation and embedding can cause volume changes and may cause tissue distortion. This study examined 24 rings of unpressurized arteries fixed with formalin, glutaraldehyde, or McDowell's solution and then embedded in paraffin or glycol methacrylate. A ring of each artery was also studied in the fresh state. The tissues were projected at 22X magnification and cross… CONTINUE READING
