Sample text

The AVJ contains not only the AVN and the bundle of His with its proximal branches, but also the AVN artery (terminal divisions of the septal branches of the anterior descending left coronary artery), the central fibrous body, the tendon of Todaro, the pars membranacea septi, some nerves and ganglia, and the septal surface of both the mitral and tricuspid valves [91]. The origins of both the aorta and the principal pulmonary arteries do not belong to the AVJ, but are adjacent to the AVJ. Being near these mitral and tricuspid valvular surfaces, cardiac contractile movements produce marked stress on the AVJ [91].

Moreover, paraganglial cells are sometimes present in the trunk of the vagus nerve at the level of the carotid bifurcation. This complex histological structure reflects the difficulty in distinguishing baroand chemoreflexogenesis in the neuronal glossopharyngeal-vagal circuits of the brainstem [97, 181, 245]. The baroreflexogenic function of the carotid sinus correlates with the chemoreflexogenic function of the inherent glomeruli so forming a unique anatomic complex. Performing a stimulating maneuver, so-called “massage of the carotid sinus” in this region, produces abnormal reflexes provoked not only by the stimulation of the carotid sinus, but also of the local glomerula (carotid body, glomus of the carotid sinus and/or sometimes intravagal paraganglia).

1 Histology In the LBB of the human heart there are many cells of Purkinje type [236, 245]. 2 Vascular Supply The anterior and middle ramifications of the LBB, which is broadly located on the left surface of the septum, are vascularized by the anterior perforant arteries (left coronary artery), and the posterior ramifications by the posterior perforant arteries (right coronary artery). Since the anterior perforant arteries are long, they also supply the intermediate area of the LBB. It must be underlined that the LBB, due to its subendocardial location and extension, is also oxygenated trans-endocardially by blood circulating in the ventricle [34, 227, 236, 245].
