Abstract

Rapid progress in the field of interventional cardiology has caused research in the field of morphometry of the heart to be in constant demand [7–10, 12]. In this study, performed on a group of 75 adult human hearts, the authors have attempted to assess the form and number of the main and accessory cusps in the tricuspid valve. We have classified particular forms into 8 groups, depending on the number of cusps and we have divided the cusps into 3 main groups, depending on the support of the chordae tendineae.
