Abstract <p>Gross specimens are valuable sources in morphology education. In this study, we investigated how the fixation of gross specimens may be accelerated. For this purpose, whole organ specimens from freshly killed rabbits: extremities, kidney, heart, liver, stomach and uterus were fixed in a mercaptoethanol-formaldehyde mixture for 3-3.5h under the following conditions: 1, at room temperature; 2, at gradually increasing temperatures up to 45 degrees C; and 3, at a gradually increasing vacuum ranging from 20 kPa to 40 kPa. The results were compared with those of formaldehyde-fixed controls, and the mercaptoethanol-formaldehyde mixture was found to be useful in shortening the fixation time and providing good fixation. Both heat and vacuum enhanced these phenomena.</p>

Abstract <p>Polyester-crystic cast was observed to reach the peritubular capillary plexus following injection in sheep kidneys. Microvascular structures in this region are also reported in this study. Glomeruli were found to vary in size and shape. Diameters of afferent arterioles were larger than those of efferent arterioles. The glomerulus is supplied by more than one afferent arteriole, and in some regions, the blood in afferent arterioles joins collateral circulation via the intercapillary plexus. Morphological properties at the end of the peritubular capillary plexus were found to be remarkably significant.&#60;/P&#62;</p>
