The comparative morphology of the gastric mucosal microvasculature was investigated using the corrosion casting technique.The vascular pattern consisted of a hexagonally arranged capillary plexus surrounding the gastric glands and terminating in venules running perpendicular to the mucosal axis. Vessels of the pyloric antrum demonstrated an acute angle between capillaries and venules, whereas vessels of the gastroduodenal junction changed from a honeycomb pattern to a leaf-like arrangement
