Anatomic Position Attitudinally Correct Anatomy Left Anterior Oblique Anterior Posterior Posterior Fresh Cadaver Dissection
Select Dissection

These educational anatomic videos provide a unique opportunity to visualize the internal anatomies of fresh human cadavers. Each fresh cadaver dissection video begins with a demonstration of the relative anatomical locations of the heart and other thoracic anatomical features and concludes by highlighting associated anatomical features and/or a previously placed device.

We are especially grateful to the individuals who made these educational videos possible by graciously donating their bodies to the University of Minnesota Medical School Anatomy Bequest Program. We also thank the family members for following through with their loved ones' requests to do so. This whole body donation program "supports medical research and education for health professionals by facilitating the donation process." If you are interested in learning more about the University of Minnesota Medical School’s whole body donation program, please visit the Anatomy Bequest Program website for more information:

We would also like to thank the Lillehei Heart Institute and the Institute for Engineering in Medicine at the University of Minnesota as well as the James B. Linsmayer Foundation for providing funding support for this educational project.
