In Chapter 36 we noted that the anterior leaflet edge is roughly fixed in position throughout systole and in Chapter 28 that this edge position is almost independent of its interaction with the posterior leaflet. This suggests that effective coaptation requires the posterior leaflet to conform tightly to the edge of the stiff anterior leaflet. In this chapter, again employing the data in Appendix E, we suggest that the posterior leaflet folds are important for this task.
