Abstract

A modification of a transparent chamber implantable into the tissues of the rabbit's ear and intended for studying the microcirculation in the subcutaneous areolar tissue and the operation of its insertion are described. The design of the chamber has advantages over existing models: The optical properties are improved, assembly of the chamber is simplified, and by virtue of the new design the regenerating tissue can be used for later histological study. Sterilization of the chambers with γ rays is simple and reliable. Besides fixation of the chamber in the tissues of the rabbit's concha auriculae by means of Lavsan gauze, additional gluing of the gauze is suggested, to prevent penetration and development of secondary infection in the operation wound and to fix the chamber more securely in the tissues of the ear.
