Caption: Colour enhanced Scanning Electron Micrograph (SEM) showing the heart's chordae tendineae (also known as heart strings). These are delicate thread-like bands of fibrous tissue that attach the papillary muscles on the internal heart wall to the heart valves, allowing the papillary muscles to control the valve flaps. Magnification unknown.
