A short recapitulation of some important details in the vascular anatomy of the myocardium is given with special reference to the direct connections from the myocardium to the ventricle. With our method for coronary angiography it is possible, as has been previously shown, to study the small vessels (�capillaries�) of the myocardium. After the occurrence of a so called �myocardiogram� a large part of the contrast fluid may pass directly from the vessels in the myocardium to the left and occasionally to the right ventricle. This passage of contrast fluid seems to be an expression for the Thebesian circulation, which consequently to a certain extent is possible to study with coronary angiography.
