Demonstration of bovine heart by corrosion cast technique

Iniyah K, Jayachitra S and Kumaravel A
The specimens made of corrosion cast technique are an important teaching aid for the better understanding of luminal organs. Casts made with silicone resin will be a good museum specimen and a valuable teaching aid. To prepare the cast for this study, the bovine heart with its blood vessels collected from the slaughter house were utilised. Air curable silicone resin for injecting into the cardiac chambers through great blood vessels were used in two forms viz., white silicone without stainer and colored silicone with stainer. The casts thus obtained after curing and maceration were finally air dried and utilised for this study. Highly durable casts of bovine heart obtained were used to demonstrate the anatomical relationship of cardiac chambers and its supply by the coronary artery. The morphological details of the bovine heart were well preserved in the cast made of silicone resin. Hence casts of bovine heart will be highly useful for academic purpose, research and for display in the museum.
