PURPOSE To examine the number and distribution of muscle spindles in all extraocular muscles (EOMs) in humans. METHODS Thirty-six EOMs were obtained after death from three persons 67, 72, and 83 years of age. Serial sections were made throughout the length of these muscles. Consecutive sections were stained with different methods. To discriminate true spindles from false spindles, light microscopic criteria were defined and were subject to ultrastructural investigation. A distal portion of a… CONTINUE READING
