Abstract [en]

In this chapter, we explore one of their likely functions. In future chapters, we examine additional functions. 

A trampoline is a device that stretches a material taut with forces from peripheral radial springs. Here, we suggest that one of the functions of the anterior and posterior strut complexes is to stretch two anterior leaflet regions into a specific taut configuration at a specific time in the cardiac cycle.
