Abstract

The mitral valve regulates blood flow from the left atrium to the left ventricle without a significant gradient during diastole and without regurgitation during systole. In 1972 Perloff and Roberts appropriately described the mitral valve as a complex structure formed of numerous structures such as the mitral annulus, valve leaflets, chordae tendineae, papillary muscles and the underlying ventricular myocardium [1]. In their excellent review the authors explained that only reciprocal interaction between all components would enable normal function of the valve as a whole. In this chapter we shall describe the normal anatomy of the mitral valve apparatus.
