Scanning electron microscopy and transmission electron microscopy were applied to lung biopsy specimens from patients with congenital heart defects, and pulmonary artery endothelium was analyzed for alterations in surface characteristics and intracytoplasmic composition which might reflect abnormal function. The patients were divided into four groups distinguished by increasing severity of pulmonary vascular changes on light microscopy graded both morphometrically and by the Heath-Edwards… CONTINUE READING
