Study of luminal cast plastination in Western Rajasthan
AbstractAims and objective:
To study luminal plastination for seeing the internal of lung which is well known to tracheobronchial tree it is done on goat lung. To study odorless, easy to demonstrate, 3 dimensional structures in anatomy, best material and easily affordable.
Material and method: Dow corning GP silicone sealant was injected into tracheobronchial tree of goat after thoroughly cleaning the lungs with saline. After the sealant solidified the surrounding lung tissue was destroyed by boiling. Thus a luminal cast was prepared.
Result: The result was sumptuous luminal cast of the Goat lung showing its tracheobronchial pattern.
Conclusion: Plastinated specimens are an excellent alternative to formalin fixed specimens. The plastinated internal Organ are dry odorless, easy to demonstrate the gross morphological details and internal structures. Plastination has a great future in all fields of teaching and research.
