Development of Thoracic Region and Vasculature

by Peter Ward, PhD

One of the most important phases in embryology is the development of the heart. Learn in detail about the formation of the right and left atria and the most common atrial septal defects. Delve into the world of AV canal development, separation of the ventricles, and formation of the outflow tract. Furthermore, Peter Ward will tell you everything there is to know about exam-relevant developmental defects of the cononotruncal ridges and shunts present in CHD.

Find out about aortic arches, large arteries and their morphological changes. Get to know the route taken by the recurrent laryngeal nerves and cardinal veins, and how large veins develop. Other important topics covered by this expanive course are subcardinal anastomosis formation, fetal circulation and the transition to mature circulation.

Lecturio and Peter Ward offer exam-relevant insights into respiratory development, including upper and large airway formation - the trachea, larynx, and lung.

And let's not forget topics corresponding to body cavity development which include the lateral plate mesoderm, diaphragm, and the separation of the pericardial and pleural cavities. A huge amount of information given in easy to understand, crystal clear lectures.
