Aortic heart valve
> News

The aortic heart valve guards the outlet of the heart and sits between the left ventricle (the main pumping chamber of the heart) and the aorta (the main artery of the body).

The aortic heart valve is made up of three separate leaflets which are gossamer thin and flexible but extremely strong.
