Detail of arteriovenous sinusoid

High-power detail of arteriovenous sinusoid supplying the specimen with blood. The sinusoid is greatly dilated and contains but a few blood cells. The lumen of the small branch in the lower right communicates directly with the intercellular spaces of the surrounding endometrium through a break in the wall of the vessel. There is massive edema and marked hemorrhage is probably the defect in the wall of this small sinusoidal branch.
