Abstract:

Histological features of renal arteries of goat revealed a typical muscular artery structure with three layers within outwards viz., tunica intima, media and adventitia. Abundant sub-endothelial connective tissue was limited by clear undulating internal elastic membrane. Tunica media in all three renal arterial segments i.e., proximal, middle and distal from aorta to the renal hilus was thicker. More than thirty rows of smooth muscle cells were arranged in circular fashion in tunica media. Their outer boundary was limited by fragmented thin wavy outer elastic membrane. Tunica adventitia of renal arteries comprised predominantly collagen and few elastic fibres which encroached into margins of tunica media and formed a circular out line around longitudinal bundles of smooth muscle. The outer elastic membrane was prominent coursing circularly in between layers of smooth muscle.
