Artery Histology

Vessels close to the heart (aorta, pulmonary trunk and the larger arteries that originate from them) are elastic arteries, the tunica intima of elastic arteries will be thicker than in other arteries.


Elastin stain will show:

  • inner elastic laminae
  • outer elastic laminae
  • fine elastic fibres in the tunica media
  • coarse elastic fibres between the collagen fibres of the tunica adventitia
