Summary

The AV is composed of three semilunar cusps left (posterior), right (anterior) and non-coronary cusp, which are related to the three sinuses of Valsalva. The main functions of the AV are to permit unimpeded LV systolic ejection and to prevent regurgitation of the LV stroke volume during diastole. The normal adult AV orifice area is 2-4 cm2.
