Comparison of uterus in heifer and she buffalo by corrosion cast technique
The cost effective corrosion cast technique was utilized for the comparison of uterus of she buffalo and heifer. The fresh samples were utilized for this study and silicone resin was injected to prepare the cast of uterus. The uterine corrosion cast depicted its gross morphology. The uterus was bicornuate in type and it consisted of two horns, a body and a cervix. The uterine horns were connected to the cervix via the uterine body and horns were directed upwards, outwards and downwards. The body was short cylindrical and connects the cervix to the uterine horns. The cervix formed the caudal end of the uterus and composed of spiral rings which were the impressions of cervical mucosal folds. There exists some differences in the morphometry of uterus of she buffalo and heifer. This study may be ideal for the comparative anatomical study of uterus of various species by corrosion cast technique.
