Abstract

The frequency of occurrence and topography of the outfow portions of the posterior veins of the left ventricle were observed. One hundred fifty adult human hearts of both sexes from l8 to 85 years of age fixed in a formalin/ethanol solution were examined. Classical macroscopic anatomical examination methods were used. The posterior veins of the left ventricle were always present in the examined heart material, but occurred in varying number (l -4). The outfow portions of these veins were characterized by significant variation with regards to position as well as angle of its outfow.
