Chordae tendinae

Other Terms: Chordae tendineae of heart, Tendinous cords of heart, Chordae tendineae cordis

Description

The chordae tendineae are fleshy columns that are attached to the cusps of the mitral and tricuspid valves of the heart. They attach the papillary muscles to these valves. Although they are very thin, they are also very strong. The thinnest of them can easily bear the weight of the entire heart.
