View of right heart valves

In the right heart, the tricuspid valve separates the atrium from the ventricle. The valve has three cusps rather than the two found in the mitral valve of the left heart. It gets its name from the toothlike shape these three cusps make when the valve closes. Chordae tendineae, attach the tricuspid valve to the papillary muscles that grow out of the wall of the ventricle./nIn the large pulmonary artery, which takes the blood from the right ventricle to the lungs, the pulmonary valve regulates the flow of blood in a similar fashion to the aortic valve.
