Week 4

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.

Healing and repair 2

Created by Prof. Mike Dixon

Male age 71

Tissue: Vein

This man was in poor health and contracted bronchopneumonia following a flu-like illness. He was put on antibiotics. After several days confined to bed, he developed swelling in both legs. Four days later he died suddenly while using a bed-pan. At post-mortem he was found to have died from a massive pulmonary embolism. The virtual slide is taken from a firm dilated segment in the left popliteal vein.

The left femoral vein contains recent ante-mortem thrombus. There was a swelling behind the left knee and both ankles showed pitting oedema.
