Figure 4

The heart tube begins as a straight tube, with blood entering caudally via the inflow and exiting cranially at the outflow tract. Heart tube looping occurs to the right, creating inflow and outflow portions of the tube. The inflow and outflow regions grow towards each other in the process of convergence, before separation creates the four-chambered heart.
