Structural organization of the glandular apparatus of the cecum in aged and elderly persons [Osobennosti strukturnoi organizatsii zhelezistogo apparata v razlichnykh otdelakh slepoi kishki u liudei pozhilogo i starcheskogo vozrasta.]
By macro- and microscopic methods structural and functional peculiarities of glands of coecum were studied in 45 healthy people who died at the age of 60-92. It was demonstrated that glands of different regions of the coecal wall displayed significant morphological peculiarities. In zones of free, omental and mesenterial bands the density of coecal glands arrangement was in all cases higher than between bands. The length, cross section area epitheliocyte number of glands of the apical zone of crescent-shaped folds exceeded that of glands between the folds. Magnification of density of glands arrangement, their area and cross section epitheliocyte number was noted in the zone of ileocoecal valve.
