Plastinated Ethmoidal Region : II. The Preparation and Use of Radio-Opaque Artery Casts in Clinical Teaching.
Journal of the International Society for Plastination
In endoscopic sinus surgery, knowledge of the course of the internal ethmoida and orbital arteries is crucial.The maxillary and the internal carotid arteries of cadavers were injected with radio-opaque , red colorede silicone. The ethmoidal regions were perpared and plastinated using the standard S10 technique. On some specimens, the ophtalmic and ethmoidal arteries were dissected prior to plastination. The plastinated specimens of the ethmoidal blocks were successfullyintroduced into clinical teaching of sinus anatomy and surgery as an aid to study vaascularization an dits relationship to surgical procedures. Among the advantages of this method are the long-lasting preservation of dissected tissue, visualization of arteries during endoscopic and radiological examinations, and invaluable teachjing and training resources for endoscopic sinus surgery.
