Which Heart Valves That Are Anchored By Chordae Tendinae
The mitral &: Tricuspid.Get a more detailed answer ›
A valve is a structure that regulates the direction of flow. The heart is a special kind of pump. It moves blood by squeezing and relaxing. There are 4 chambers and each chamber has a valve. This keeps blood from moving backwards when the heart squeezes. When a chamber squeezes it lets the blood move forward but when the chamber is relaxed it prevents the blood from ...Read more
4 locations: The first valve blood crosses is the tricuspid valve between the right atrium and right ventricle. Blood then flows across the pulmonic valve between the right ventricle and the lungs on its way to the lungs where it picks up oxygen and discards waste. It returns to the left atrium and crosses the mitral valve between the left atrium and left ventricle. It then exits across the aortic valve. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Prevent leak-back: The valves keep the blood moving forward in the circulatory system. The blood moves in starts and stops, with each heart beat. So to keep it moving forward and to prevent it from leaking back when the heart relaxes, there are one-way valves in place, much like the locks and dams in the panama canal. ...Read more
Huh?: I really don't understand your question. Sorry. ...Read more
Quite safe: In this day in age, several hundred thousand of these procedures have been performed successfully. Three types of valves: animal (porcine or bovine), bioprosthetic, mechanical. The latter requires long term blood thinners and blood test have to be performed periodically to ensure the blood is thinned enough. The latter tends to have a longer life, too. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Chordae: The mitral and tricuspid have chordae. The mitral ones are those we discuss most. ...Read more
Three leaky heart valves and palpations. Was prescribed no meds. Was told heart was healthy can this be true?
Before echo's: In the old days, rheumatic heart disease was the cause of most "hearable" murmurs:if heard, you were in trouble. Now with better stethoscopes & esp echo machines, "innocent" murmurs are frequently heard (or small valve leaks are commonly seen with echo) and normal--even all four valves. www.thepmc.org. ...Read more
Does not enlarge: Your heart valves don't enlarge. They can get thickened or calcified. They can get infected or destroyed by infection. The structures that support the heart valves can get stretched or rupture, but the valves themselves don't get enlarged. Heart chamber can get enlarged. ...Read more
