Paper Title:
Acupuncture Meridian and Intravascular Bonghan Duct
  Abstract

Current anatomical theory does not recognize the existence of an extended floating threadlike structure inside the blood vessels. Nonetheless, this study developed a new method for observing such an intravascular threadlike structure. The key technique involves injecting acridineorange into the femoral vein to circulate along the blood vessels and stain the nuclei of the intravascular threads inside the blood vessels. In-situ observations were then made under a fluorescence stereomicroscope after saline-perfusion. Confocal microscope images revealed a distinctive characteristic pattern of nucleus distribution that was clearly distinguishable from fibrin, capillaries, small venules, arterioles, or lymph vessels. Accordingly, it is suggested that the identified intravascular threads are part of the Bonghan's circulatory network that is distributed throughout the body, including inside the blood vessels.
