prostate, angiography


Objectives. An original method of fresh pooperative prostate specimens microangiography is presented.
Material and methods. Material consists of microangiographic studies of 9 glands obtained during from cystoprostatectomies and
radical prostatectomies. Specimens were injected with contrast media, fixed, sliced and X-rayed. Results and conclusions. Microangiography is a difficult method but pictures obtained in our study give an unique look on angio-
architecture of prostate. Improving of this method may allow a better understanding of prostate cancer vascularization
