Changes in the lung with an aseptic or infected inflammatory focus following ligation of the pulmonary artery

  • N. V. Boikova
Morphology and Pathomorphology


The pulmonary artery was ligated in the lung with an existing aseptic (10 rabbits) or infected inflammatory focus (8 rabbits). In both experimental series ligation of the pulmonary artery did not promote any spread of the inflammatory process from the focus along the pulmonary tissue. Circulatory disturbances with a subsequent appearance of diffuse or focal pneumosclerosis developed around the focus after ligation of the pulmonary artery. Complications in the form of perifocal purulent inflammation and abscesses, developing in a number of cases, were connected with secondary infection of the lung.
