Organization of a vertebrate cardiac ganglion: a correlated biochemical and histochemical study
RL Parsons, DS Neel, TW McKeon and RE Carraway
[...] Tissue extracts of the cardiac septum
containing the parasympathetic cardiac ganglia from control animals were found, by high-pressure liquid chromatography, to contain significant amounts of norepinephrine (NE), epinephrine (E), dopamine (DA), and 5-HT. To allow neural elements of extraganglionic origin to degenerate, ganglia were explanted and maintained in organ culture for 8 d. Extracts from these explanted preparations had no detectable level of E, and NE was reduced, whereas DA and 5-HT levels were similar to those of control preparations. The results indicated that some of the neurons intrinsic to the cardiac septum
contain DA and 5-HT and that most (greater than 70%) of the E and NE found in this tissue is of extrinsic origin. http://pt.wkhealth.com/pt/re/ajog/abstract.00...

Effect of reserpine, phenoxybenzamine and cold stress on the neuropeptide Y content of the rat peripheral nervous system.
Allen JM, Schon F, Yeats JC, Kelly JS, Bloom SR.
After 48 h, neuropeptide Y concentrations were reduced in all tissues. The greatest reduction occurred in the cardiac septum
(77%) and the least in the inferior vena cava (25%). http://www.discc.duke.edu/heart_research/ppt%...

Endocarditis – involves inflammation of the innermost layer of the heart, including the valves, chordae tendineae, cardiac septum
or the lining of the chambers.
