英文摘要: Abstract(#br)Background(#br)Coronary artery stenting has become a common procedure and cardiovascular pathology specimens containing these metallic stents are accordingly becoming common. Histologic examination of stented vessels is imperative, but special techniques are needed due to the presence of metal within the tissue. We describe a rapid and inexpensive method for preparing stented vascular specimens for routine histology suitable for use in almost any histology laboratory.(#br)Design(#br)After formalin fixation and decalcification, stented vascular segments were freeze-embedded and sectioned using a handheld power micro cutoff wheel tool into ~1 mm slices. Sections were allowed to thaw and the strut shards removed with fine forceps. No longer containing metal, the sections were...
