Introduction: Fixation and preparation of the cadavers for anatomical dissection of the different human organs has been routinly practiced in many medical institutes. Chemicals used for fixation, usually caused too many artifacts including abnormal histological appearance of different organs, unpleasant smell, unfixes materials, etc... .To stablish new method to fix cadavers in order to avoid at least part of above problems.
Materials & Methods: Ten cadavers were used and divided into experimental and control groups. Each experimental group received 12 liters of new fixative contaning (Borax Buffer, HCHO; absolute Ethanol; Boric acid; Ethylen glycal; Lisoformin;, potassium nitrate; salicylic acid; H202 and thymol). Control receive regular codaver fixative.
The new fixative fluid in all specimens, were injected gradually in the period of 48 hours, and kept in solution of 5% sterillium or phenol and ethylen glycol for 14 months.
Results: In comparison with the controls, the results showed excellent fixation in all anatomical structures with least artifacts in all examined experimental groups.
Conclusion: It is concluded that using new fixator increased that using new fixator increased stiffness and quality of strate muscular tissue, improved fitation of fatty tissue, fasciae and membranes. By using this new fixation. priphral and central nerves and blood vessels were better distinguished than routhine fixator.
