Anatomical photograph of a horse hoof sectional anatomy specimen by Dr. Christoph von Horst. The anatomical color preserved embedding section shows details of the digital cushion, horse hoof cartilage, equine digit blood vessels, etc.
A new kind of embedded silicone plastination specimen. It combines the realistic 3-dimensional vision of anatomical details in silicone plastination with the attractive and convenient hands-on approach of embedded specimens
The sheet plastinate shows how the fracture goes through almost the entire long pastern bone. These fracture can usually not be treated in horses. During treatment horses develop severe problems also in the other foots: see plastination of laminitis in the equine hoof.
The equestrian magazine Cavallo shows a plastinate of the equine hock (tarsal joint sagittal section) in its Mai issue. In the following months various insight into the horse anatomy will be shown in the horse magazine. All plastinates and anatomical photographs were done by myself. Similar specimens and prints can be ordered directly at HC Biovision.
