An injection study was carried out in sheep hearts to compare the anatomy and distribution of Thebesian veins (venae cordis minimae) in the ventricles. The left azygos, middle cardiac, small cardiac, and anterior cardiac veins were ligated in 36 hearts, and India ink was injected into the right coronary artery or the left coronary artery or the coronary sinus. Examination revealed foramina Thebesii in both of these cardiac chambers. Myocardial tissue samples were taken, and 12 were subsequently… CONTINUE READING
