Aortomitral continuity

Andrew Murphy and Dr Francis Deng et al.

The aortomitral continuity (also known as the aortomitral curtain, aorticomitral junction, intervalvular fibrous body) is a fibrous sheet located between the noncoronary and left coronary leaflets of the aortic valve and anterior leaflet of the mitral valve. It is attached by the left and right fibrous trigones to the left ventricular myocardium.
