Cardiac Looping

Heart1 looping icon.jpg

Cardiac looping occurs in humans from late in the fourth week to early in the fifth week (GA week 7).


The heart tube is initially straight in an almost rostro-caudal (head-tail) direction) virtually fixed at the upper and lower ends.


As the heart tube is grows and elongates it begins to fold or "loop" inside the pericardial cavity.
