Abstract

In this research, the macrostructural, microstructural and histochemical aspects wereInvestigated in 6 clinacally health dogs to identify thepossible alterations on the strucutre, morphometric and qualitative parameteres ofneurons of the celiac ganglionar complex. Our observations revealed that the celiacganglion was originated dose to the origin of the celiac artery and showed a irregularaspect, being caractherized as a complex. Histochemical/y, neurons NADPHdiaphorase reactives were identified. This positive reaction, on health animais, led us to conclude this neurons were potentially nitrergic, besides,to confirm the nitrergic aspect for this neurons it is necessary to combineimmunohistochemical method.
