Ultrastructure of rabbit tracheal epithelium after the administration of Hexabrix--a hexaiodated contrast agent for tracheobronchography.

Abstract

The ultrastructure of the tracheal epithelium after the application of 1 ml of Hexabrix (a hexaiodated contrast agent for tracheobronchography) into the airways was studied. Severely altered pseudostratified columnar epithelium was found in the trachea. Eighty-one +/- 5% of the goblet cells had been stimulated to discharged mucus. Forty-three +/- 3% of them… (More)
