We applied scanning electron microscopy combined with imaging and morphometric techniques to analyze the dorsal topography and morphology of short portal vessels linking the capillary beds of the pituitary neural and anterior lobes in adult male albino rats. The pituitary microvasculature was replicated by intracarotid injection of Batson's No. 17 compound producing plastic casts that were advantageous for comprehensive morphometric analyses using an imaging device. The analysis revealed the… Expand
Pituitary Anatomy and Development
Although descriptions of the pituitary gland can be traced to the second century A.D., major advances continue to be made with respect to elucidating the organization and functional anatomy of thisExpand
Micro-CT of corrosion casts for use in the computer-aided design of microvasculature.
TLDR
This study focused on the acquisition of data necessary to create scaffolding that directly mimics the unique structural patterns of a microvascular tree system and found that the BMCC method is superior to the Microfil method for accurate and complete high-resolution imaging of capillary beds.

Sheehan syndrome
TLDR
D diagnose Sheehan syndrome is based on clinical manifestations combined with a history of severe PPH; hormone levels and/or stimulation tests can confirm clinical suspicion. Expand

TLDR
In the scanning electron micrographs of the isolated and dissected blood vascular replica of the rat cerebral hypophysis, it was unequivocally indicated that the vascular bed of the anterior lobe is supplied by the capillary plexus of the median eminence and the neural stalk. Expand
Blood vascular bed of the rat pituitary intermediate lobe, with special reference to its development and portal drainage into the anterior lobe. A scanning electron microscope study of vascular casts.
TLDR
This paper strongly suggests a portal circulation from the intermediate lobe to the anterior lobe though its functional significance is unknown. Expand
Scanning microscopy of pituitary vascular casts.
TLDR
It is proposed that the entire neurohypophysis, not simply the median eminence, serves as the final common pathway to the glandular pituitary. Expand

TLDR
The marginal layer has been described with reference to its relationship with the subjacent granulated and agranular cells of the pars distalis and pars intermedia of the hypophysis and the three-dimensional architecture of the associated glandular parenchyma is evaluated. Expand

TLDR
The entire microvascular architecture in rat foot-pads including that of eccrine sweat glands was studied by scanning electron microscopy using a vascular corrosion-cast replication technique and may adjust well to the mechanical and physiological conditions encountered in the foot- pads. Expand

TLDR
The significance of the findings is discussed in relation to the results of transection or experimental occlusion of the hypophysial stalk, and to the pathogenesis of post-partum necrosis of the anterior pituitary. Expand

TLDR
To assess the direction of pituitary blood flow, a bolus of Lissamine Green was injected into the cervical carotid arteries of 26 female pigs and blood flow was observed through the operating microscope and was recorded by microcinephotography. Expand
