An Easy, Cost-Effective and Time-Conserving Method of Studying the Vascular Anatomy of the Base of the Skull


In this work we present a simple, rapid, cost-effective and time-conserving method of studying the vascular anatomy of the base of the skull. This method is based on the injection of the arteries and veins with an appropriate coloring solution that possesses the property of rapid solidification. This technique of preparation of the coloring solution and the method of injection is described in detail. The advantages and disadvantages of this technique are also discussed.
