A simple and readily reproducible technique for investigating induced microcirculatory phenomena in the living extracorporeal eye, under carefully controlled conditions, is described. Direct observations of intravascular events are recorded and correlated with pathologic examination and quantitative analyses of blood and retinal tissues. This technique has been used to study various aspects of intravascular clotting and may have wide application in investigating other microcirculatory phenomena

    Background: Bone has the ability to adapt to mechanical usage or other biophysical stimuli in terms of its mass and architecture, indicating that a certain mechanism exists for monitoring mechanical usage and controlling the bone's adaptation behaviors. There are four zones describing different...
