Abstract

The papers of Ohta and coworkers are the pioneer works on the spleen microcirculation, using macrocorrosion casting [1, 2]. In this context, the research works of Gupta and collaborators should also be mentioned, which were done on the goat, dog, buffalo, and sheep spleen [3–8]. The human spleen vasculature has been studied using angiographic and macrocorrosion casting methods [9–11]. Most of what we know about the spleen microcirculation is, no doubt, the result of work done by the group of Groom, Schmidt and MacDonald. These authors focused on the micro-circulatory pathways of mice, rats’, sheep, cats’, dogs’, and humans’ spleen using microvascular corrosion casts in the scanning electron microscope.
