Details of the mammal (rat) uterine vasculature illustrated by a resin cast. The large vessels that form the stratum vasculare are observed in a longitudinal section of the uterine wall. The divisions supply the myometrial layer in which they reside as well as the endometrial lining of the uterus. The subepithelial plexus as viewed from the luminal surface of the uterus is composed of anastomosing capillary loops, some of which form a basket-like network around the location of the uterine glands. The holes in the luminal surface of these casts correspond to openings in the tubular glands that extend toward the epithelial surface. SEM X396  3.5" X 4.5"  **On Page Credit Required**
