Using serial section histology of 14 postmortem-treated hemipelvis (eight males, six females; mean, 79 years old), we examined the population number, distribution, and tyrosine hydroxylase-immunoreactivity (TH-IR; suggesting sympathetic neurons) of extramural pelvic ganglion cells. All pelvic ganglion cells were uniformly sized (25–30 μm) contrasting with small intramural rectal neurons. Abundant ganglion… CONTINUE READING
