The heart of the ostrich (Struthio camelus), just like the domestic birds's heart, has a muscular right atrioventricular valve without chordae tendinae and a membranous left atrioventricular valve. The left and right pulmonary veins enter the left atrium independently and their openings were completely separated from each other by a septum. In the heart of the ostrich, the moderator bands were found in both the right and left ventricles ventricles Subject Category: Anatomical and Morphological Structures see more details in different locations. The right ventricle presents one tendinous moderator band Cited by: 9. The AV node may not always be present in different avian species and seems to differ in location and contents between species. In this study, the anatomy and histology of the AV node were studied five female adult ostriches (Struthio camelus). Routine paraffin sectioning and transmission electron microscopic method were by: 1. Heart anatomy in the ostrich has been reported, but there are few information on the histological features of the atrioventricular valves. Hearts of young ostriches were fixed in 10% formaldehyde for 24 h and dissected to characterize their macroscopic anatomy.

Radiographic anatomy of the thoraco-abdominal cavity of the ostrich (Struthio camelus) W M Wagnera, R M Kirbergera and H B Groenewaldb INTRODUCTION Ostriches (Struthio camelus), together with the kiwi, emu, rhea and cassowary, are classified as ratites, and are the most economically important representatives of this group.

The distribution of the coronary arteries of the ostrich is described and compared with existing accounts of other species of birds. The blood supply to the ventricular walls, part of the interventricular septum and atria comes from the superficial branches of the left and right coronary arteries. The arrangement of the ventricular myocardial fibers of the ostrich heart (Struthio camelus) was macro and mesoscopically studied in 14 ostrich hearts, dissected by an adaptation of the Pettigrew.

Ostriches are subject to many diseases that also affect poultry. Scientific knowledge about diseases of ostriches is incomplete. The three-dimensional anatomy of the ostrich (Struthio camelus) knee (femorotibial, femorofibular, and femoropatellar) joint has scarcely been studied, and could elu-cidate certain mechanobiological properties of sesamoid bones. The adult ostrich is unique in that it has double patellae, while another similar ratite bird, the emu, has none.   The ostrich heart has some different features from the other birds. In the ostrich, fibrous pericardium as sternopericardial ligament attaches along the thoracic surface of the sternum. The central edge of muscular valve hangs down into the right ventricle and gives attachment to its rough parietal wall by a thick muscular stalk.
