Abstract [en]

In Chapter 26 we identified two major pleats at the P1/P2 and P2/P3 junctions of the posterior leaflet, characterized their kinematics throughout the cardiac cycle, and approximated their surfaces with two filled (red and blue) triangular surfaces. These triangles, however, are only intended as a visualization device; we know that the actual pleats in the closed valve would bow inward toward one another as systolic left ventricular pressure acts on their outer ventricular surfaces to press their convex faces tightly together. We cannot appreciate such curvature in these studies, however, because of the limited spatial resolution of our sparse marker arrays.
