The anterior leaflet contains both sensory and motor nerves, striated and smooth muscle, VICs, and other metabolizing cell types, thus it is not surprising that blood vessels have been found in the leaflet body and chordae, although such findings have sometimes stirred controversy. Swanson et al.1 employed selective injections of fluorescein dye into the left anterior descending and circumflex coronary arteries of ovine hearts excised immediately after heparinization and cardioplegic arrest to assess potential leaflet perfusion patterns associated with such vessels.
