For the art portion of my project, I did a 3D model of the heart in crochet. The two pictures on the top is a normal size heart and the four on the bottom with push pins indicating structures of the heart is an enlarged heart. I also placed tabs on all of the structures of the heart: Right and Left Atrium, Aorta, Superior Vena Cava, Brachiocephalic trunk, Left subclavian artery, Left Common carotid, Pulmonary veins, Pulmonary arteries, and Pulmonary Trunk. I wanted to show how much larger an enlarged heart (also called Cardiomegaly) looks like. A normal size healthy heart is about the size of your fist ranging from 1.6 inches in women and 1.8 inches in men, while an enlarged heart averages above 2 inches. Cardiomegaly causes the muscles of the heart to weaken and the ventricles to stretch (dilate) to the point that the heart has difficulty pumping blood throughout the body.
