Libelle of note
The semilunar leaflets of the aortic valve are separated by commissures: sinistrodextra, posterosinistra and posterodextra (Kachlik et al. 2021 Bosn J Basic Med Sci 21:208-220).
The interleaflet triangles occupy the space between the distal semilunar hinges of the leflets of the arterial valves as they extend to become attached at the sinutubular junction (Vismara et al. 2014 J Biomech 47:329-333). They may also be viewed as parts of the fibrous skeleton of the heart (Saremi et al. 2017 Radiographics 37:1330-1351).
