[The vascularization of the vagina bulbi]

Gegenbaurs Morphol Jahrb. 1990;136(6):709-22.
[Article in German]


The construction of the vagina bulbi was examined in injection preparations with the aid of microdissection methods, and its layers were defined. Inside the connective tissue leaves occur loop capillaries up to 14 mm in length. The course of the venae vorticosae through the vagina bulbi as well as the width of the episcleral vessel network were measured. Also the subconjunctival network and arteries and nerves perforating sclera were studied. The ascertained results are discussed with former and recent anatomical and clinical reports.
