Cadaveric study of Plastination over formalin
Introduction: The successful preservation of conventional methods by embalmed cadavers/ corpse’s are routinely practiced for educational/research purposes. The anatomists are try to find out new alternatives to overcome the various health hazards during handling of embalmed cadavers in institutional teaching of medical sciences. So, to overcome the toxic effect of formalin, plastination is used.
Material and method: A Luminal cast Plastination was prepared by GP silicone sealant was injected into tracheobronchial tree after thoroughly cleaning the lungs with saline. After the sealant solidified the surrounding lung tissue was destroyed by boiling. And a Sheet Plastination was prepared by cut thin slice brain and mounts by resin used for making thin transparent section.
