Summary Information: Chordae Tendineae

Chordae Tendineae: Chordae tendineae are fibrous cords of tissue that secure the tricuspid and mitral valves to the walls of the right and left ventricles. Chordae tendineae prevent the tricuspid and mitral valves from being displaced by the pressure of blood flow through the chambers of the heart.

Conditions that afflict the chordae tendineae include ruptured chordae tendineae, subvalvular aortic stenosis and infective endocarditis.
