Cardiac muscle separate the chambers of the heart. Connected to the left ventricle is the aorta, a large vessel that carries blood into the body. The heart sits on top of the diaphragm, a thin sheet of muscle that separates the thoracic cavity from the abdominal cavity. The liver is situated just below the diaphragm and above the transverse colon and pancreas.
