The application of electron microscopy and cellular biochemistry to the autopsy. Observations on cellular changes in human shock.


A method based on the utilization of electron microscopy, morphometric analysis, tissue culture, and biochemical analysis in the study of human autopsies is described. In this method rapid sampling immediately following somatic death is conducted in order to make meaningful the application of such techniques. In addition to describing the procedure, we present some new findings relating to cellular changes associated with shock. As in cellular pathobiology, it is of utmost importance that ultrastructural changes be correlated with alterations in chemistry and function.
