Adequate examination of the coronary arteries at forensic autopsy is often difficult. No matter whether the arteries are opened longitudinally or transversely, each method has its disadvantages. A technique making silicone rubber casts of the cardiac vessels providing simultaneous angiography is described. The method allows the three-dimensional precise assessment of stenotic lesions of the coronary arteries. It is concluded that the method examined could be useful for the forensic problems.
