Sample text

Unlike the papillary muscles of the right ventricle, these 21 papillary muscles are large and arise only from the free wall surface. The outlet component consists of the portion of the ventricle that gives rise to the aortic valve. Two leaflets of the aortic valve have muscular attachments to the outlet component. The posterior part of the outlet component is short, with the remaining aortic leaflet supported by the fibrous tissue of the aortic root, which is in fibrous continuity with the anterior leaflet of the mitral valve (Figs.

In patients undergoing potential revascularization, it is important to report also on the status of plaques in the ascending aorta and supra-aortic vessels due to the potential risk of embolic stroke related to both catheter-based and surgical procedures. Additionally, the presence of aortic aneurysm or dissection in the proximal aorta should also be noted for patients undergoing surgical revascularization because bypass grafts will often be anastomosed in the aortic wall. It is also useful to note anomalies in the internal mammary arteries, which may be used for graft conduits, and concomitant aortic valve disease, which can be repaired at the time of surgery (69).

There are also several smaller cardiac veins that drain directly into the right atrium (31). Pulmonary Arteries and Veins The pulmonary artery is a short, wide vessel, about 5 cm in length and 3 cm in diameter, which supplies deoxygenated blood from the right side of the heart to the lungs. It commonly arises from the conus arteriosus of the right ventricle and extends obliquely upward and posterior, passing at first in front and then to the left of the ascending aorta. The right branch of the pulmonary artery is longer and larger than the left, runs horizontally to the right, posterior to the ascending aorta and superior vena cava and in front of the right bronchus to the hilum of the right lung, where it divides into two branches.
