To determine the innervation of human semilunar valves, we examined the pulmonary and aortic valves of the normal autopsied hearts of 3 men (53 to 71 years old). Whole valve tissues with the aorta or pulmonary trunk were stained for acetylcholinesterase by a histochemical method. Acetylcholinesterase-positive nerve fibers with a diameter of 2 to 20 mm were located on the ventricular side of the semilunar valves. Innervation of the semilunar valves was extremely sparse compared with that of the… CONTINUE READING
