WHAT DOES ENDOCARDIUM MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Endocardium

The endocardium is the innermost layer of tissue that lines the chambers of the heart. Its cells are embryologically and biologically similar to the endothelial cells that line blood vessels. The endocardium also provides protection to the valves and heart chambers. The endocardium underlies the much more voluminous myocardium, the muscular tissue responsible for the contraction of the heart. The outer layer of the heart is termed epicardium and the heart is surrounded by a small amount of fluid enclosed by a fibrous sac called the pericardium.

Definition of endocardium in the English dictionary

The definition of endocardium in the dictionary is the membrane that lines the cavities of the heart and forms part of the valves.
