Embryology of the pleura Derivation all body cavities from the coelom derived from primitive mesoderm and lined with mesothelium — same origin as pericardium and peritoneum — all at risk from primary mesothelioma Surface anatomy of the pleura The surface marking of the lung represents the markings of the visceral pleura. The apex of the lung extends convexly upwards to a distance of approximately 2. The anterior border of the right lung descends from the posterior aspect of the sternoclavicular joint, behind the sternal angle, to the level of the xiphisternal joint. The left lung has a similar course until it reaches the level of the 4th or 5th intercostal space, where it curves laterally beyond the lateral margin of the sternum to accommodate the cardiac notch.

Following cardiac mesoderm involution during gastrulation, the two endocardial tubes fuse along the embryonic midline. The heart starts to beat at day 22, but the circulation does not start until days 27 to The single tubular heart develops many constrictions outlining future structures. Prior to looping the heart tubes forms constrictions defining separate components of the heart, these are cranial to caudal : Bulbus Cordis , Ventricle and Atrium. The primitive atrium is still paired and onnects caudally to the paired sinus venosus. The heart tube will bend ventrally, caudally and slightly to the right.
