Abstract: This study aimed to investigate the morphological, functional, and structural components of the Gallus gallus domesticus myocardium. The evaluation was performed over a seven-week period to determine the remodeling of this organ in a lineage of broiler chicken. The study group consisted of twenty one animals aged between one and seven weeks old, separated in G1 to G7. The assessed parameters were: volume density of cardiomyocytes and interstitium; and densities of connective tissue, collagen fibers I and III, interstitium, and their correlations over the studied period, to determine body remodeling. The Vv(cardiomyocytes) values decreased from 73.89% to 47.78%. The Vv (interstitial) increased from 25.98% to 48.89%. The percentage of connective tissue increased from 3.29% to 13.75%. The type I collagen fiber increased from 0.06% to 0.5% in the last week. The type III collagen decreased 46% in the period, from 0.39% at baseline to 0.18% at the end.
