I've done this with gore-tex grafts in carotids - in paraffin sections 
routinely processed.  They were pretty nice - I don't know if the acrylic 
would hold up to xylene, however.  So, my answer is pretty much useless -

Hello ....

I've been asked to obtain histological sections from rabbit tendons with 
an acrylic fiber inside  to see how the tissue incorpores the fiber.
I can try to do it frozen or parafin embedding, although I think I can 
cut the acrylic fiber with no one of the methods.  Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance.
