      CONTRIBUTIONS TO THE STUDY REGARDING THE EVOLUTION OF THE PRIMITIVE CADIAC LOOP (Abstract): The structural and functional organization of the heart myocardial mass is a controversial matter that cannot be resolved by anatomical studies alone. Therefore, other approaches such as investigations of the development of the primitive cardiac loop might help to resolve controversies about the structural and functional organization of myocardium. Modern concepts regarding the spatial orientation of ventricular myocardium might be the morphological correlate of twists and torsions of the embryonic heart loop. In the present review, which only tries to be a contribution to the already well known studies, we highlight the events regarding the evolution of the primitive cardiac loop as one of the most important stages of cardiac development of which many mechanisms are still incompletely understood.
