Title: Histology of the Myocardial Bridges and the Related Arteries of the adult dromedary Camel (Camelus dromedarius)
Author: Mustafa, Marwa Abdelgader; Mohammed, Ali Abdalla
Abstract: The aim of this study was to investigate the histology of the myocardial bridges of the dromedary camel. Ten adult she-camels were used for this study. The samples were collected from Al- Salam and Al-Buga´a slaughter houses, Sudan. Specimens were taken from regions showing myocardial bridges. They were then processed for routine histological techniques. The regions of the myocardial bridges were obviously covered by large amount of adipose tissue. This adipose tissue infiltrated the cardiac muscles of the bridge. The lumina and the tunics of the interventricular branches lying unearth the bridges were obviously compressed giving the lumina oval shapes. The cardiac muscles distal to the bridges showed no signs of myocardial infarctions. It was therefore concluded that the presence of the myocardial bridges is a normal feature in the heart of the dromedary camel
