Where is the cardiac notch dog?

In the dog, the forelimbs can be brought forward. The heart is situated in the 3rd to 5th intercostal spaces and occasionally as far caudally as the 7th. The cardiac notch in the lung acts as a valuable window to examine the heart more effectively, by auscultation and echocardiography.

Where is the coronary Ostia?

The coronary ostia are located in the coronary sinuses of the aortic root. According to the Nomina Anatomica Veterinaria [1], the left main coronary artery is divided into two vessels: the interventricular paraconal branch and the left circumflex branch. This is confirmed in the studies of Habermehl [2], Atalar et al.

What does the coronary vein do?

Coronary veins are responsible for draining deoxygenated blood from the myocardium into the cardiac chambers. Comprised of two venous systems, coronary veins classify into either the greater cardiac venous system or the smaller cardiac venous system.

Where do the coronary vessels come from?

There are two primary coronary arteries, the right coronary artery (RCA) and the left main coronary artery (LMCA). Both of these originate from the root of the aorta. The RCA emerges from the anterior ascending aorta and supplies blood primarily to the right atrium, right ventricle.

What do coronary veins empty into?

The cardiac/coronary veins empty into the coronary sinus, which then empties into the right atrium, meaning the answer is d).

Where do coronary veins drain into?

right atrium
There are numerous venous tributaries traversing the surface of the heart. They eventually coalesce to form the coronary sinus, which drains indirectly into the right atrium. Additionally, the anterior cardiac veins and the Thebesian (small) veins drain directly into the cardiac chambers.
