Some Observations on Tissue Sampling Lessons from the Arterial Wall

  • E. G. Cleary
Part of the Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology book series (AEMB, volume 79)


I have been asked to comment on some of the major problems involved in obtaining representative samples of normal and diseased tissues — based on my studies of arterial walls. I have had little personal experience with the study of lung disease, but I am convinced that many of the lessons learned from these examinations of arteries are applicable to the lung.
