The authors report on data emerging from an interdisciplinary research into the plastination of organs (a reversible technique, which, whilst safeguarding the characteristics of the material examined, makes it unalterable in time). The study sets out to ascertain the possibility of utilising materials first damaged and then plastinated both for didactic purposes and as an element of proof that remains identical in terms of its specific characteristics, and available at any time, even years later, for civil, penal and insurance purposes. A presentation then follows of the results obtained in an internal organ subjected to lesions by a sharp instrument, after which an assessment is made of the trustworthiness of the morphological characteristics of the lesions themselves after plastination.
