Spirals

spiral septum

A septum dividing the embryonic bulbus cordis into pulmonary and aortic outflow tracts from the developing heart; the distal spiral septum is derived from the right and left endocardial cushions and so separates the pulmonary and aortic orifices; the proximal spiral septum is the portion of the septum that is incorporated into the membranous part of the interventricular septum.
