Abstract

Background: The aim of present study was to study morphology of middle cardiac vein in human hearts.
Materials and Methods: The study was conducted on middle cardiac vein of thirty human hearts with due
clearance from ethical committee.
Results: The mean diameter of middle cardiac vein was 2.57 1.16 mm and the mean length was 74.69
21.10 mm. There was also statistically significant relationship between length of middle cardiac vein and
weight of cadaver. In some hearts middle cardiac vein and small cardiac vein together form common trunk
and then drain into coronary sinus.
Conclusion: Middle cardiac vein can be used for radio frequency ablation of a posteroseptal pathway. It
can also be used for newer interventional technique such as selective catheterization. It may be one of the
choices of implantation of pacing leads.
