Delayed,in vivo hepatic postmortem autolysis
- 22 Downloads
After death cells appear in the sinusoids of rat liver which have round or oval, prominent darkly-stained nuclei and scanty cytoplasm. On the basis of their structure, their simultaneous appearance throughout the liver, their ability to take up carbon particles and their appearance in the postmortem liver despite antemortem venous occlusion or splenectomy, these cells have been identified as reticulo-endothelial cells of the sinusoidal lining of the liver that have undergone pycnotic changes after death.
