Papillary muscles & cordae tendineae (Heart strings) of the heart

Papillary muscles & cordae tendineae (Heart strings) of the heart

The papillary muscles are the muscles located in the ventricles of the heart. They are attached to the cusps of the atrioventricular valves (also known as the mitral and tricuspid valves) via the chordae tendineae (The white cords in the given photo) and these papillary muscles contract to prevent inversion or prolapse of these valves during systole or ventricular contraction. 📷•Medicogram•
