A titanium chamber, enabling in situ studies of living bone, was inserted into the adult rabbit metaphysis. The true vascular state of an observable bone tissue compartment was microscopically defined after autologous grafting of the chamber and a surrounding bone collar. Micropaque and India ink microangiography, respectively, were performed under direct, simultaneous inspection in a vital microscope. In 20 animals Micropaque and India ink, on the average, filled out less than 50% of the… CONTINUE READING
