Vascular casts of human oxyntic mucosa, examined by scanning electron microscopy, revealed that (a) arterial breakup occurs only at the submucosal aspect of the mucosa, there being no arterial vessels further into the mucosa and (b) mucosal capillaries drain into the infrequent mucosal venules only in the most luminal region of the lamina propria immediately underlying the surface mucus cells; the mucosal venules do not receive capillary tributaries deeper within the mucosa. Thus, blood flow in… CONTINUE READING
