The blood vessel system in the periodontal ligament of the equine cheek teeth--part II: The micro-architecture and its functional implications in a constantly remodelling system.

Abstract

The micro-vasculature of the equine periodontal ligament (PDL) was investigated using corrosion casts for scanning electron microscopy. Specimens from eight healthy warm-blooded horses were examined. Specific vascular features such as large ampullae with a diameter of up to 300 microm and blind vascular casts were found in the specimens of the equine PDL… (More)
