Hanno Steinke and Plastination


Atlas of Fascia Topography: published at Leipzig Anatomy.

The first fascial anatomy atlas, published in early 2015 by Prof. Carla Stecco, served as a milestone in the field of macroscopic human anatomy. It has become ‚a classic’ in the field of fascial anatomy (see https://preview.tinyurl.com/y9y7efqv. In a few days, a second fascial anatomy atlas is published by our group in cooperation with the award-winning German photographer Anna Rowedder. The photographic images in this book are most impressive, as they are most carefully dissected and illuminated to enhance perceptual clarity.

Fascia staining in plastinates on the pelvic anatomy

We are on to correlate CT/MRI/and thin slce plastination together with our gynecologists. Prof. Höckel, leader of the Leipzig School of Radical Pelvic Surgery, supports this project. Two recent publications aristed from this fruitfull cooperation: 2017 at Geburtshilfe Frauenheilkunde and 2018 at Annals of Anatomy (Anatomischer Anzeiger).

Fascia live dissection

Dissecting fascia at specimens combined with haptic exploration of living patients tries a next course. In consequence of the succesful of Fascia Summer School 2016 this course was early occupied, and also the next is under booking (in German).

Fascial Plastination Project

We contributed to the Fascial Plastination Project.
