Modality: Anatomic specimen

Orientation: Posterior left ventricular view

Description: The left ventricular aspect of the same heart shown in image A010100-134a has a light placed on the right side of the membranous septumThe membranous septum is seen to be continuous with the interleaflet fibrous triangle (yellow dots) positioned beneath the zone of apposition between the non-coronary and right coronary leaflets of the aortic valve. The fibrous trigones (yellow and red diamonds)_ are the thickened areas at the ends of the zone of fibrous continuity between the leaflets of the aortic and mitral valves (black line). The so-called central fibrous body, the strongest part of the fibrous skeleton of the heart, is formed by the union of the right fibrous trigone and the membranous septum.
