CROSS-SPECIES ANATOMY - ANNOTATIONS

The Basic subset of the UBERON integrated, cross-species anatomy ontology is downloaded weekly from http://berkeleybop.org/ontologies/uberon/basic.obo. For more information about this ontology see the "About" page on the UBERON website at http://uberon.github.io/about.html.

Term:foramen ovale of heart

Accession:UBERON:0004754 term browser browse the term
Definition:An anatomical space in the fetal heart that allows blood to enter the left atrium from the right atrium.
Comment:It is one of two fetal cardiac shunts, the other being the ductus arteriosus (which allows blood that still escapes to the right ventricle to bypass the pulmonary circulation). Another similar adaptation in the fetus is the ductus venosus[WP]
Synonyms:exact_synonym: Bottalo's foramen;   falx septi;   foramen ovale cordis;   ostium secundum of Born
 narrow_synonym: foramen ovale
