By Minnie D. on 18. December 2016 for Lungs, mediastinum and cardiac valves

The lecture is really helpful and everything is well explained

Excellent overview for heart embryo
By Waasafa R. on 29. November 2016 for Blood Vessel and Heart Development

This video is great if your stuck on heart embryo, and you need someone to take you by the hand and guide you through the main points. It doesn't get into the nitty gritty, but it provides a good framework to build upon.
