Where Is The Chordae Tendinae Located
Below: The chordae tendinae are attached to the underside of the tricuspid (right side of the heart between the right atrium and right ventricle) and the mitral valve (left side of the heart between the left atrium and left ventricle). The attach much the same way that the chords of a parachute attach to the chute. The transmit the forces to pull open the valve and align it to close properly. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Aortic Valve: The aortic valve is an integral part of the heart and is located between the left ventricle and the aorta. It opens when the left ventricle contracts (systole) and allows blood to be pumped into the aorta. It closes when the left ventricle fills (diastole). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Between LV and Ao: The aortic valve is a passive flap valve with three leaflets which opens as the left ventricle (LV) ejects blood into the Aorta (Ao). After ejection, the LV relaxes, and when LV pressure is lower than Ao pressure, the aortic valve flaps closed, preventing blood from leaking (regurgitating) back into the heart. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Mitral Valve: Bicuspid mitral valve is redundant. The (normal) mitral valve is bicuspid and named after a bishop's miter, which it resembles. The valve is located between the left atrium and left ventricle. It opens during diastole to fill the ventricle and closes during systole to prevent blood from leaking back. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Hold valve: Think of valve as a parachute, chordae tendinae are the "ropes" that anchor the valve leaflets or cusps to the heart muscle. Heart muscle contraction pulls on these cords to close the valve, when when heart relaxes then the valve opens. They are an important part of the heart valve apparatus. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
