Development of the leaflets of the aortic and pulmonary valves. The semilunar valves arise from the conotruncal and intercalated cushions of the outflow tract. The conotruncal (superior and inferior septal) cushions give rise to the right and left leaflets of each of the semilunar valves. In the aorta, these are the right and left coronary leaflets, while in the pulmonary valve, these are the right and left cusps. The right-posterior and the left-anterior intercalated cushions develop respectively into the posterior aortic (non-coronary cusp of the aortic valve) and the anterior pulmonic (anterior cusp of the pulmonic valve) leaflets. Abbreviations: AL, anterior leaflet; APIC, anterior pulmonary intercalated cushion; CA, coronary artery; ISC, inferior septal cushion; LL, left leaflet; LCL, left coronary leaflet; NCL, non-coronary leaflet; PAIC, posterior aortic intercalated cushion; RCL, right coronary leaflet, RL, right leaflet
