Visceral Pericardium: The visceral pericardium is the outer layer of the tissues of the heart. It lies over the myocardium and under the pericardium. It is also considered the innermost layer of the pericardium and is also called the epicardium. It is made of connective tissue and epithelial cells. The visceral pericardium provides a protective layer for the heart and secretes the pericardial fluid, which acts as a lubricant for the pumping action of the heart.
Conditions that afflict the visceral pericardium include pericarditis, pericardial effusion and cardiac tamponade.
