Abstract

The aim of this work is to determine morphological and topographical aspects of the great cardiac vein, especially its relation to the branches of the left coronary artery. The examination of the cardiac veins was carried out on 36 specimens of hearts of both sexes aged between 12 and 70 and without any known history of change in cardiac pathology. The techniques applied by us were anatomical dissection and retrograde injection of the coronary vessels with Polimal 100, Polimal 150 and Durakryl resin. We examined the topography and morphology of the great cardiac vein and the mutual correlation between the great cardiac vein and the branches of the left coronary artery.
