A cardiothoracic ratio is taken. The thoracic situs is determined, noting the lobation of the lungs and the position of the heart and cardiac apex along with the atrial morphology. Descriptions of atrial and ventricular morphology will be discussed further in Chapter 8. The great vessels are inspected, including the vessels branching from the aortic arch and from the ductus arteriosus. A better view of the ductus arteriosus, aortic arch, and descending aorta distal to the ductus can be achieved by retracting the left lung from the pleural cavity (Fig.

Markedly macerated or hydrocephalic brains can be removed under water by the same method described above. The brain will float in the water, eliminating tearing of the parenchyma that is caused by gravity and the weight of the brain itself. Fetuses and infants can easily be placed into a large container of water or in the large sinks usually found in autopsy rooms. In older infants where the calvarium has become thicker, scissors can no longer be used. A saw is required, and a nearly circular cut is made to remove the skullcap.

This prevents the cerebrospinal fluid from escaping. A culture can be drawn at this time, using a sterile needle and syringe. The dural incision is enlarged to expose the cervical cord and foramen magnum.
