Brain vascularization by transplanted omentum
The method of autogenous intracranial transplantation of omentum majus in the dog was previously reported. (4) This was originally conceived as an experimental method for treating hydrocephalus. Brain vascularization by transposition of omentum into the subdural space of animals was also reported. (1) Our purpose here is to show that brain vascularization has now also been observed following transplantation of omentum majus on the brain surface itself.
