dc.description.abstract To study the cytophysiology of the Corpus albicans in the recent postmenopausal period, the authors analyzed the ovarian ultrastructure of ten patients submitted to oophorectomy due to non-malignant gynecological diseases. Evidence of a remodeling process with connective tissue substitution of the corpora albicantia was observed. The remodeling process appears to depend on the activity of three essential cell types: the fibroblasts, which provide collagen synthesis; the macrophages, which phagocytize the flaky material; and the myofibroblasts, mainly located in the peripheral region of the corpora albicantia, which may have a retracting action on the remodeling site of the Corpus albicans. en
dc.description.abstract Os autores analisam a ultra-estrutura dos ovários de dez pacientes na pós menopausa recente submetidas a ooforectomia devido a doenças ginecológicas benignas e descrevem o processo de remodelação do corpo albicante, ou seja, de sua substituição por tecido conjuntivo. Referem que tal processo depende basicamente da atividade de três tipos de células: os fibroblastos, que estariam envolvidos com a síntese das fibras colágenas; os macrófagos, que fagocitariam o material floculento presente nos corpos albicantes, e os miofibroblastos, localizados principalmente na região periférica dos corpos albicantes, e que estariam relacionados com a retração do sítio remodelatório do corpo albicante. Referem ainda que o processo de remodelação dos corpos albicantes do ovário depende dos níveis hormonais vigentes. pt
