Example text

P cells connect only with each another and with transitional cells, while transitional cells exclusively contact the SAN, as well as the internodal and interatrial tracts. The junctions of slender cells with P cells are simple, consisting of apposition of the plasma membranes with many desmosomes, while the junctions among the transitional cells or between these and the cells of the internodal tracts are complex, resembling the ordinary intercalary disks. The framework of these thin fibers is one of the more readily recognizable characteristics of the SAN [85].

It adheres to the central fibrous body (CF), a dense structure of collagen. The AVN node artery is located eccentrically. The tendon of Todaro (T) is separated from the AVN and located in the right atrium (A), but its location varies greatly in the human heart (VS interventricular septum) (Trichromic Heidenhain, ×25) 1. P cells (see Sect. 1). These are located mainly in the deepest portion of the AVN. They are fewer numbers in the AVN than in the SAN. 2. Star cells. These are the predominant cell type in the AVN.

The arcuate nucleus (ARCn) is an important cardio-respiratory center of the ventral medullary surface, characterized by great morphological variability [104, 136, 138]. ARCn hypoplasia, detected in over 50% of SIDS and SIUD victims [136, 138, 142], is of great interest, particularly because of its frequency and pathogenetic implications. , the respiratory reticular formation, the solitary tract nucleus, the hypoglossus nucleus, the ambiguus nucleus, the locus coeruleus; and the parabrachial Kölliker-Fuse complex and the cerebellum [115, 117, 118, 138, 146, 155, 174].
