The key events that occur in the development of the heart and the great vessels.


By the end of this session you will be able to:
• Define the key events that occur as the heart develops from a primitive heart tube to a four chambered system in order to explain some common anomalies of the heart and great vessels
• Establish the sequence of events that occur during partitioning of the primitive atrium and ventricle; the formation of the cardiac valves; the transformation of the outflow tract from a single to a double tube
• Summarise the development of the aortic arches and their derivatives
