Heart
...  pericardial fluid ensuring smooth heart movements in a state of suspension within the sac. There are also three special layers creating the outer wall of the heart. It is epicardium also called the visceral pericardium. It creates the outermost layer of the heart wall. The myocardium, thick layer of muscle squeezed as the heart beats, is the middle layer of the heart wall. The endocardium of  ...

Visceral Effector Organs
...  This will allow the muscle to contract and bring the injured body part away from the painful stimulus. This response is automatic and does not require a conscious effort from the person. What are visceral effector organs? These are effector organs influenced by involuntary effector muscles, which can only mobilize when specific nerve impulses are conducted to the smooth muscles. Nerve  ...

Arteries of the Pelvis
...  branches that branch out from the internal iliac artery. The pelvic wall gets its blood supply from the lateral sacral arteries as well as the iliolumbar artery. Within the pelvis are several visceral organs that get their blood supply from the middle rectal artery and other arteries that serve the bladder and the superior, middle and inferior vesicular arteries. The female reproductive  ...

Serous Membranes
...  are filled with connective tissues. The serous membranes are primarily responsible for secreting enough fluid lubrication for the purpose of digestion. The serous membranes have two segments - the visceral segment (which house the internal organs) and the parietal segment (which line the body wall). The serous membranes that take care of the lungs are called pleurae, and those that look after  ...

Tunics
...  connective tissues. The serosa also makes sure that when the GI tract goes through a strong pressure, it holds itself together. The serosa’s simple squamous epithelium is a continuation of the visceral peritoneum, since the latter does not have  ...

Uterine Tubes
...  due to the peristaltic contractions of the muscularis and the undulation of the cilia. The oocyte stays for four to five days on the fallopian tube. The tube’s outer layer is classified as a visceral peritoneum element. Fertilization occurs when the oocyte meets with a spermatozoa. When the spermatozoa reaches the fallopian tube, fertilization occurs relatively fast. he zygote (which is  ...

Uterine Wall
...  wall of the uterus is composed of the perimetrium, the myometrium and the endometrium. The perimetrium is characterized by an outer layer of thin, visceral peritoneum. A broad ligament then runs and continues on to the uterine wall’s lateral segment. When the peritoneum passes over the urinary bladder, a shallow pouch called the vesicouterine pouch is formed. When an adjustment is made  ...
