Abstract

It is necessary to distinguish morphologically a cleft in an otherwise normally structured mitral valve in hearts with separate right and left AV junctions from the trifoliate left component of a common AV valve in hearts with an AV septal defect and a common AV junction because the disposition of the AV conduction tissues varies markedly between the lesions.
