endocardium +‎ -al

Examples

  • Also called atrioventricular septal defect or endocardial cushion defect.

    Cardiac terms and definitions

  • We would be looking for hydrocephalus, an endocardial cushion defect or abdominal wall defect, nuchal fold thickening, a short or absent nasal bone, hydronephrosis, echogenic bowel, shortened humeri or femurs—all markers used in the ultrasound diagnosis of Down syndrome.

    Handle with Care

  • Joanna spread the heart open again and pointed at the large mass that involved the upper septum and extended down into the endocardial wall.

    Fatal Care

  • She went back to the heart and split it apart, exposing the interventricular septum and the endocardial wall.

    Fatal Care

  • The aortic and pulmonary semilunar valves are formed from four endocardial thickenings—an anterior, a posterior, and two lateral—which appear at the proximal end of the truncus arteriosus.

    V. Angiology. 3. Development of the Vascular System

  • These thickenings, or endocardial cushions (Fig. 465) as they are termed, project into the canal, and, meeting in the middle line, unite to form the septum intermedium which divides the canal into two channels, the future right and left atrioventricular orifices.

    V. Angiology. 3. Development of the Vascular System

  • The deception was possibly due to the presence of loose and shaggy membrane attached to the endocardial lining of the heart, or in some cases to echinococci or trichine.

    Anomalies and Curiosities of Medicine

  • A similar wound was next found in the pericardium, and upon examining the heart there was seen a clean, incised wound 1/2 inch in length, directly into the right ventricle, the endocardial wound being 3/8 inch long.

    Anomalies and Curiosities of Medicine

  • Acute valvular disease can not be distinguished from endocarditis, and chronic valvular affections are generally the result of endocardial inflammation.

  • In view of the fact that many affections in even remote portions of the body may be traced directly to a primary endocardial disease, we shall feel justified in inviting special attention to this disease.
