This anatomical-physiological study was undertaken to determine the suitability of the sheep for studies of the bronchial circulation. We designated the terminal portion of the bronchoesophageal artery, which runs to the trachea at the carina, as the "carinal" artery. Postmortem injections of india ink (9 sheep) and Batson's solution (4 sheep) into the carinal artery showed that the carinal artery supplied the bronchi of all lobes except the right apical lobe; the mass of the lung containing… CONTINUE READING
