Pathological appendix versus normal appendix


Antonella Chesca and Tim Sandle have written a paper of interest to those working in pathology or medicine. It concerns the pathological appendix compared with the normal appendix.

Here is the abstract:

This article makes reference to certain structural issues, that can be found during the appendix surgery and which are examined microscopically. For the study permanent preparations resulting from appendectomies, charged for removal in cases of gangrenosum appendicitis, were examined microscopically. For comparison and analytically, describable microscopic permanent preparations with gangrenosum appendix, were compared with normal appendix. Stains used in this structural study are Hematoxylin-Eosin, van Gieson and Gomori silver impregnation. Preparations were examined using Nikon microscope and magnifying lenses with powers x10, x20 and x40.
