Abstract

The coronary sinus collects blood from the heart walls. It is structure, which presently plays a very important clinical role in invasive cardiology. In this study, the occurrence of the main tributaries of the coronary sinus was examined as well as the topography of their outlet portions. Material consisted of l50 adult human hearts of both sexes from aged 18 to 85 years. In the examined material, the great and middle cardiac veins as well as the posterior vein of the left ventricle were always observed. The remaining tributaries of the coronary sinus were less stable. The outlet portions of the main veins of the heart were characterized by significant variability.
