Studies of experimental tumors in rodents indicate that there are morphological abnormalities of the tumor microcirculation compared to normal tissues. The aim of this study was to examine the structure of the microvasculature in benign and malignant colonic tumors in humans using microvascular casting techniques. There were 15 adenocarcinomas, four benign sporadic adenomas, and three specimens from patients with familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP). A cast of the microvessels of these tumors… CONTINUE READING
