Abstract

The microarchitecture of blood-vessels of elastic type (aorta abdominalis, arteria iliaca) was observed at rabbits after a long time diet enriched by cholesterol. Using optical microscopy pathological changes along the blood-vessel were studied. Using the Cavalieri principle the volume of atherosclerotic lesions is estimated and the precision of estimators investigated. The permeability of blood-vessels is quantified by the ratio of lumen section area without and with plaques from transverse histological sections.

Keywords : atherosclerotic plaques, blood vessel wall, Cavalieri principle, stereological methods
