Macrostructure of the cranial cervical ganglionar complex and distal vagal ganglion during post natal development in dogs
Keywords:Cranial cervical ganglion, Distal vagal ganglion, Nodose ganglion, Sympathetic trunk, Nervous system
AbstractTwelve specimens of head and neck of the domestic dog (Canis familiaris) were dissected to study the situation, arrangements and branches of the distal vagal ganglion and the cranial cervical ganglion. The ganglions showed a fusiforme shape, covered by the M. digastricus. The main branches of the cranial cervical ganglion included the internal carotid and external carotid branches and of distal vagal ganglion included the cranial laryngeal nerve. This study showed that the cranial cervical ganglion and the distal vagal ganglion in dogs are well developed structure. There were no obvious anatomical differences between the same ganglions presented in both antimeres.
