Lecture outline

Tissues may recover from injury/stress through repair and regeneration, or respond through cellular adaptation. If the insult persists, then chronic inflammation may occur leading to long term damage.

Tissue: Uterus

There are three pieces of uterus on the slide. The middle piece is from a pre-menopausal adult female who underwent hysterectomy for pre-cancerous changes in the cervix. The longest strip is from a pregnant woman who underwent hysterectomy at the time of a Caesarean section. The upper (short) strip is from an elderly woman who underwent hysterectomy as part of a pelvic floor repair for uterine prolapse (descent of the uterus into the vagina).

This is a normal uterus. It corresponds with the middle strip of tissue on the slide.
