Mitral Valve .






.LYMPHATIC SYSTEM IN HEART • All of the lymphatic drainage of the thorax is directed toward the bronchomediastinal trunks. and descending intercostal lymphatic trunks. thoracic duct.

it is formed by – – The superior cervical cardiac branch of the left sympathetic chain – The inferior cervical cardiac branch of left vagus .• NERVE SUPPLY OF THE HEART • Both the parasympathetic and sympathetic nerves form the superficial and deep cardiac plexuses • The superficial cardiac plexus is situated below the arch of aorta in front of the right pulmonary artery.
