Innervation of diaphragm through intercostal nerves in cats (Felis catus, Linnaeus, 1758)
Keywords:Cat, Diaphragm, Intercostal nerves
AbstractThe knowledge of organism's anatomy is essential to conduct any experiment or study with itself. Based on that, we decided to analyze and study in details the innervation of the diaphragm muscle from intercostal nerves in cats. It goes beyond other authors' analysis that describes only the innervation from phrenic nerves. Despite we have got a range of results, we observed a major frequency of eighth to tenth intercostal nerves going to diaphragm muscle.
