Anatomy Lab #6:The Heart and Major Vessels of the Thorax1
The Heart and Major Vessels of the ThoraxThe heart is located within the mediastinum, the central divisions of the thoracic cavity between the pleural cavities surrounding the lungs. The mediastinum also contains the thymus, trachea, bronchi, esophagus, and great vessels of the heart. The heart itself is immediately surrounded by the pericardial cavity, a thin fluid-filled cavity that ensures a low-friction environment for the movements of the heart.
