Example text

At this stage, it is vaguely organized, but is already in its characteristic location in relation to the central fibrous body that is still gelatinous in consistency [91]. Both the AVN and the bundle of His are modified little or not at all during the remaining fetal life, but within 1 or 2 weeks of birth they undergo dramatic transformation [91]. In the infant heart, there are fragments of nodal AV tissue dispersed along all the borders of the central fibrous body (including the ventricular septal crest).

Moreover, paraganglial cells are sometimes present in the trunk of the vagus nerve at the level of the carotid bifurcation. This complex histological structure reflects the difficulty in distinguishing baroand chemoreflexogenesis in the neuronal glossopharyngeal-vagal circuits of the brainstem [97, 181, 245]. The baroreflexogenic function of the carotid sinus correlates with the chemoreflexogenic function of the inherent glomeruli so forming a unique anatomic complex. Performing a stimulating maneuver, so-called “massage of the carotid sinus” in this region, produces abnormal reflexes provoked not only by the stimulation of the carotid sinus, but also of the local glomerula (carotid body, glomus of the carotid sinus and/or sometimes intravagal paraganglia).

2. Star cells. These are the predominant cell type in the AVN. They anastomose through short pluridirectional ramifications to form a three-dimensional net, mixed with a collagen and elastic network. In the distal portion of the AVN the specialized fibers tend to become parallel [227]. Some star cells are located in the atrial septum with direct contact with the cells of the internodal pathways [88]. Also detected rarely: 3. Common myocardial cells [227]. 4. Purkinje cells, particularly in the periphery of the AVN and in the area between the AVN and the right atrial endocardium [88].
