This stock medical artwork illustrates two traumatic conditions of the heart: cardiac tamponade and aortic dissection. The heart and aortic are viewed from a lateral cutaway, clearly demonstrating the compression of the heart caused by blood in the space between the myocardium and the pericardium. Green arrows emphasize how the ventricles are kept from expanding fully, so the heart cannot adequately fill or pump blood. Yellow arrows indicate the direction of blood flow from the heart into the aortic trunk.
