Deposition of Lipid in Calf Aorta Maintained in Vitro
Morphologic and histochemical observations on the isolated perfused calf aorta maintained in vitro provide evidence that the aortas remain viable during perfusion. The appearance of lipid in the inner layers of the aortic wall corresponds to the previously reported biosynthesis of lipid by the aortic wall. There is a lag period of 24 to 48 hours between the chemical and morphologic appearance of lipid.
