An experimental study was carried out in 8 dogs to delineate the blood supply to the body of the mandible under normal conditions and when the central (medullary) circulation was blocked. A vascular blocking technique combined with selective arterial perfusion using different colored perfusates was used. The results were based on an evaluation of cleared specimens, microradiography and histology. Under normal conditions, the inferior alveolar artery was shown to be the sole source of perfusate… CONTINUE READING
