(mī-ŏ-kard′ē-ă) pl. myocardia [myo- + -cardium] The middle layer of the walls of the heart, composed of cardiac muscle. The layers of cardiac muscle form a complex spiral. When they contract they twist or wring blood from the ventricles. The muscle layers are attached to an internal “skeleton” of the heart composed of dense connective tissue.
