Aortic vestibule (anatomy)

Last reviewed dd mmm yyyy. Last edited dd mmm yyyy

Authoring team

The aortic vestibule is the superior region of the left ventricle which lies just inferior to the aortic orifice. It forms part of the outflow tract of the chamber and it is correspondingly smooth-walled. Passing superiorly, its walls increasingly consist of fibrous tissue. It lies intermediate to the smooth part of the interventricular wall and the anterior cusp of the mitral valve.
