leaflet fusion and narrowing of the annulus can contribute

to valve stenosis.

Figure 8.1. Position of heart in thoracic cavity. (a) The intra-atrial and intra-ventricular septae are located 45° from the sagittal plane. Anterior penetrating thoracic wounds are more likely to injure the right atrium or ventricle than the 'left-sided' chambers. (b) MRI demonstrates the position of the intra-ventricular septum. In addition, this figure shows a right atrial myxoma (arrow). MRI: magnetic resonance imaging; RV: right ventricle; LV: left ventricle; RA: right atrial; LA: left atrial.
