SANTANA, Marcelo Ismar Silva et al. Irrigation of the cloacal bursa in breeding stoch of the Peterson linage (Gallus gallus domesticus). Braz. J. Vet. Res. Anim. Sci. [online]. 1999, vol.36, n.2. ISSN 1413-9596. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1413-95961999000200001.
The cloacal bursas arteries of 30 males Gallus gallus domesticus were injected whit 50% ARTECOLAÒ solution, and submitted to dissection. The age of the birds was to 10 to 12 weeks. The vessels origin, number and sequence were studied. The results showed the participation of the left and right bursocloacal arteries in all cases, whit the association of the left and right cloacal arteries (16.66%), median caudal artery (6.66%) and caudal mesenteric artery (3.33%). The total branches number, without considering its origin, varied in 2 to 5, being 2 branches the major frequency. The vessel distribution was the same in each bird.
