The structure of the ovary, especially its blood vessels were investigated using the organs of 20 healthy animals. The two big branches of A. ovarica, the thicker caudal branch and the thin cranial branch were found to show a densely contorted course in the outer zona vasculosa. Those rami of the first and second order descending from the main branches show a similar course. In the functional bodies,

Within the theca extema there was a roughly structured dense vascular network supplied by a large number of smaller arterial vessels of second order. They again formed a delicate capillary network. In the corpus luteum the capillaries ran in parallel to each other. The Graatian follicles ripe for ovulation as well as the mature corpora lutea had a diameter of about 5 cm.
