Abstract

To study the blood supply to the esophagus of Black Bengal goat a research was conducted in the Department of Anatomy and Histology, Bangladesh Agricultural University, Mymensingh-2202 with 12 Black Bengal goats of over 6 months of age of both sexes. The esophagus of Black Bengal goat was sampled at six sites- cranial cervical, middle cervical, caudal cervical, at the level of thoracic inlet, at the middle mediastinum and at the level of cardia. The arteries supplying the cervical and thoracic part of the esophagus came from the left common carotid and esophageal artery respectively. The esophageal artery arose from the thoracic aorta independently in Black Bengal goat.
