Arterial vascularization and structure of the uterine tubes of undefined race goats
Keywords: Arteries, Uterine tubes, Goats, Genital organs
AbstractThirty sets of genital organs from adult goats were collected in specialized slaughter houses. Two procedures were utilized in this experiment: 1) injection of red dyed neoprene latex 450 followed by fixation in a 10% formaldehyde water solution; 2) injection of cinabrium dyed gelatin followed by a diafanization process using the method of Spalteholz. It was observed that the vessels responsible for the blood irrigation of the womb tubes come from the ovarian arteries. The ovarian arteries in all samples had their origin in abdominal aortas varying only in their position, uterine, lateral or uterine lateral. Besides being responsible for the blood irrigation of the ovaries, the ovarian arteries also created branches to the womb. The womb tube divides into a mid tube artery, which irrigates the mid portions of the tubes and into a stream tube artery, which is responsible for the irrigation of the caudal portion of the womb tube and the extremity of the uterus. It also irrigates the skull tube artery, that originates from the womb tube artery and arterially supplies the skull portions of the womb tubes. Histologically, all the segments of the tubes (isthmus, phial and inphundibulum) showed a simple, cylindrical, ciliated epithelium and were also constituted by the mucous and the muscular layers by a serous membrane.
