Carefully age-matched groups of patients, surgically treated for either traumatic injury (n = 5; mean = 71.2 years) or for early stage carcinoma (n = 5; mean = 74.2 years), were used to investigate all the splenic tissue compartments applying model-based stereology. The point-counting method was utilized to study the volume densities of following tissue compartments: red pulp, perifollicular zone, white pulp (this compartment was divided into two subcompartments: follicles and periarteriolar… CONTINUE READING
