ABSTRACT

The aim of the work was to conduct studies of morphological features of arteries
extending from the ascending aorta in broiler chicken. Analysis and comparison
of the variability was made to contribute to the knowledge of the cause of cardiovascular
problems in birds. The study was conducted on 45 broiler chicken. Material was
obtained as dead individuals as a result of chance. Arteries were filled with
latex by a medical syringe through the left ventricle of the heart. The reconstituted
material was fixed for 4 months in 5% formalin solution. Arteries were prepared
and photographed. There were two arteries extending from brachiocephalic trunk
in the basic pattern: the subclavian artery and the common carotid artery. Arteries
separate from the brachiocephalic trunk at the same height. In broiler chicken
a tendency was noticed to produce a common departure within the brachiocephalic
trunk (right and left). Independent departure of the brachiocephalic trunk from
the ascending aorta was similar to the anatomical norm in domestic fowl.

Key words: broiler chicken, arteries, aortic arch.
