Abstract/OtherAbstract:
METHODS: Macroscopic study was carried out on 40 human hearts from 18-72 (25-male (M), 15-female (F)) years of age and microscopic study - in a group of 20 human RAA (M-10, F-10), 18-72 years of age. Only hearts without anomalies were included in the study. Classical anatomical studies and statistic analysis were applied.
RESULTS: Right atrial appendages (RAA) is triangle shaped with a mean area: 2,73 cm². Muscle fascicules builds the wall of RAA and compose a dense net inside a chamber. Sagittal bundle connecting terminal crest with apex of RAA was observed in all examined hearts. In microscopic specimens longitudinal and perpendicular fascicles were described.
