Example text

SAN collagen is a mixture of P cells and slender cells which form a periarterial framework. 3 Cardiac Conduction System more, the collagen separates into small groups of cells, so limiting the extension of cellular contacts. Collagen is an inherent component of both the SAN artery and the basal membrane of the nodal cells. Whatever the exact mechanism by which the central artery influences the pacemaker rate of the SAN, without doubt the normal framework of dense collagen contributes significantly to this functional relationship.

Moreover, argyrophilic cells have been observed in the cervical sympathetic ganglia. They are considered interneurons that control the general level of afferent and efferent activity. Experimental evidence suggests that modifications of the cardiac rhythm are due only to the action of the low neuroreceptors rather than to that of the carotid sinus [245] (Fig. 7). 4 Central, Peripheral and Autonomic Nervous Systems 37 Fig. 7 The carotid body or glomus is located between the two carotid branches; it is found in the area of the carotid bifurcation, on the internal carotid artery side, close to the “swelling” of the carotid sinus.

The origins of both the aorta and the principal pulmonary arteries do not belong to the AVJ, but are adjacent to the AVJ. Being near these mitral and tricuspid valvular surfaces, cardiac contractile movements produce marked stress on the AVJ [91]. The central fibrous body and the tendon of Todaro are two important functional structures for the mechanical strength of the AVJ. 1 Central Fibrous Body The central fibrous body of the adult human heart is a dense structure of collagen, while in the fetus and in the newborn it is almost entirely a gelatinous substance (Fig.
