• Direct surgical manipulation of the developing embryo heart is one of several physical and chemical methods that are known to produce congenital cardiac anomalies in experimental animals.' This procedure involves the concept that the pattern of blood flow through the embryonic heart is of prime importance in cardiogenesis. It is thought that the primitive cardiac tube is molded by the streaming of blood through it, thus determining subsequent development and location of the ventricular… CONTINUE READING
