Figure 5 A photomicrograph in a section of a thoracic aorta in the atherosclerotic group showing absence of intimal corrugation and bulge formation (spiral arrow). Adhesions of RBCs to the surface of the intima (thin arrow). Vacuolated cells in the sub-endothelial layer (foam cell) (thick arrows) were noticed. There is apparent increase in the thickness of both tunicae intima and media. (H&E X200)
