Lungs of newborn and of 7- and 30-day-old pigs were fixed at total capacity by a standardized procedure. Stereologic morphometry was applied to random ultrathin sections of parenchyma. Relative volume density, absolute volume, and capillary surface coverage of intravascular macrophages as well as parameters of relative morphometric diffusion capacity of lungs were assessed. Intravascular macrophages occupied up to 25% of capillary volume in 30-day-old pigs compared with 6% in newborn pigs; this… CONTINUE READING
