I will choose Lecturio over any other online medical lectures. Your team of lecturers are so Superb. This lecture has thought me a lot and all details I need to know about Cardiovascular histology. Thanks a lot Dr. Meyer and Lecturio.

 
nice work
By Ece Ç. on 13. May 2017 for Heart (Cor)

pretty much understandable and good quality visuals but could be prepared more detailed regarding the chambers of the heart, cusps' orientation and papillary muscles.

 
Thanks
By Karen L. on 14. February 2017 for Lungs, mediastinum and cardiac valves

the part on parietal pleura is a bit unclear as it confuses us when the lecture only focuses on talking about the location of inferior border of visceral pleura. Moreover, it confuses me when you only talk about the anterior , middle and posterior part of the inferior mediastinum but not mentioning that in the superior mediastinum. It makes me hesitate whether there are anterior, middle and posterior parts in the superior and what viscera can we find there...
