What is the function of the chordae tendinae?

What is the function of the chordae tendinae?

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 more

What is the consequences of a ruptured chordae tendinae on the right ventrical?

What is the consequences of a ruptured chordae tendinae on the right  ventrical?

Rupture chordea: it is like an anchor line to fix a tent onto the ground. chordae rupture makes the valve lose its functional closing effect disrupting efficient pumping effect of the heart. ...Read more

What is the function of the chordae tendinae and papillary muscles?

What is the function of the chordae tendinae and papillary muscles?

Structure o valve: The valve leaflets are tethered by the chordae tendinae and the papilary muscles. The contraction of the papilary muscles then in turn cause movement of teh valve leaflets allowing opening. ...Read more

What is the significance of a heart valve tendon?

What is the significance of a heart valve tendon?

Heart strings: Cord like tendons that connect the papillary muscle to the tricuspid and mitral valve. By relaxing during atrial systole blood pass to the ventricle and contracting during ventricular systole and preventing the prolapse of the valves. ...Read more

What is the significance of hydro elastoma of the mitral valve?

What is the significance of hydro elastoma of the mitral valve?

Rupture?: The hydro elastoma is a filament that is attached to the mitral valve and other structures of the left heart that has the potential to rupture and embolize, meaning that remnants and particles of it could move through the blood stream potentially block flow. ...Read more

What is the significance of nonfunctional or defective chordae tendinae?

What is the significance of nonfunctional or defective chordae tendinae?

Heart disease: The chordae are support structures for the mitral and tricuspid valves. When they are damaged, valvar insufficiency results. This can be severe enough to cause congestive heart failure either acute or chronic. ...Read more

What is the normal are of the mitral valve?

Mitral valve: The mitral valve has to open properly to let blood flow into the left ventricle from the atrium. If it doesn't, we call this stenosis. It has to close to keep the blood flowing toward the body, if it doesn't we call this regurgitation or insufficiency. Either or both problems can exist with the valve if its abnormal. Insufficiency is more common. ...Read more

What is the structure of mitral valve?

What is the structure of mitral valve?

Not just the leaflet: The mitral valve has two leaflets that open and shut. However, there is an important supporting structure. The leaflets attach to thin chordae tendinae, dental floss-like chords that connect leaflets to papillary muscles. The pap muscles are bands of muscle tissue arising from the wall of the heart, whose contraction and relaxation transmit force to the leaflets. ...Read more

What is the mechanism of the aortic valve?

What is the mechanism of the aortic valve?

Think swinging gate: The aortic valve is like a gate situated at the exit of the heart, that needs to swing open every time blood is ejected from the heart, and then needs to shut tight after ejection, preventing backflow of blood into the heart while it is relaxing. It is comprised of 3 cusps, like the doors of a gate, which swing outward simultaneously, and then come back to swing shut. ...Read more

Could you tell me what is the name of the vein and artery that faces opposite of the rest?

Pulmonary: Veins carry deoxygenated blood back to the heart and arteries carry oxygenated blood away from the heart and towards the organs. Pulmonary arteries carry deoxygenated (venous) blood to the lungs and pulmonary veins carry oxygenated (arterial) blood out of the lungs. ...Read more

What is the function of the bicuspid valve in the heart?

What is the function of the bicuspid valve in the heart?

You mean malfunction: The aortic valve has 3 parts or leaflets. When its called bicuspid it has only 2 leaflets. This can be congenital or aquired. If two of the cusps fuse over time is called functional bicuspid vs congenital. Either way it creates an un natural flow across the valve and over time damage the valve. Most often the valve will need replace depending on age diagnosed.Most congen bicuspids will need repla. ...Read more

What is the significance of a sticky heart valve?

What is the significance of a sticky heart valve?

Valve: The valve opens to allow flow out of the heart to the body. If it doesn't open properly we call this stenosis. It has to close properly to keep blood flowing in a forward direction. If it doesn't we call this insufficiency. Either or both abnormalities can exist in the valve. Severe stenosis results in decreased cardiac output eventually as does severe insufficiency. ...Read more
