27 The Brain Fig. 28 28 The upper end of the spinal cord has now to be transected, preferably with a scalpel. Only too often one encounters specimens where there is a tapering wedge of spinal cord attached to the medulla as a result of trying to transect the spinal cord as low down as possible. This means that the spino- medullary junction and the upper segments of the spinal cord cannot be properly examined. The cervical cord should therefore be transected transversely (see Fig. 31) just at f or above, the cervico-medullary junction.

In the figure opposite the left fifth (trigeminal) nerve is being cut. Fig. 27 The vertebral arteries have now to be cut. These must be cut individually since if they are simply cut through when the upper end of the spinal cord is being transected, they almost invariably tear with the result that a considerable amount of each vertebral artery and indeed even the origins of one or both posterior inferior cerebellar arteries may remain in the base of the skull. Thus each vertebral artery (arrow) should be transected with curved scissors immediately above its point of entry into the skull.

Any blood should be rinsed off the surface of the brain with normal saline. 1 have been taken, the brain should be immediately suspended in fixative. If it is allowed to lie for even 10 to 15 minutes on the dissection bench, the brain becomes distorted; and when it is dissected after fixation it is not possible to assess herniation and shift accurately as a result of post-mortem distortion of the ventricular system. Furthermore, such distortion prevents the specimen being used as a source of illustrations for publications or for teaching.
