    slipping her hand under the heart apex

    Advertisements



    A 23-year-old male injured in an industrial explosion was found to have multiple small metal fragments in his thoracic cavity. Since the pericardium was torn inferiorly, the surgeon began to explore for fragments in the pericardial sac. Slipping her hand under the heart apex, she slid her fingers upward and to the right within the sac until they were stopped by the cul-de-sac formed by the pericardial reflection near the base of the heart. Her fingertips were then in the:

    A. coronary sinus
    B. coronary sulcus
    C. costomediastinal recess
    D. oblique sinus
    E. transverse sinus
