Description This image shows the brachial artery (a muscular artery) at lower left, and the brachial vein at right. The staining of elastic fibers demonstrates the dark internal elastic membrane (IEM) and external elastic membrane (EEM), sandwiching the tunica media. The arterial intima appears to have sloughed into the lumen during preparation. The tunica adventitia of the artery blends with that of the vein. Note the vein's characteristic large collapsed lumen and thin, collagenous wall. UCLA Histology Collection.
