Overview

The valve of the coronary sinus (Thebesian valve) is a semicircular fold of the lining membrane of the atrium, at the orifice of the coronary sinus.

It is named for Adam Christian Thebesius.[1][2][3]

The valve may vary in size, or be completely absent.[4]

It may prevent the regurgitation of blood into the sinus during the contraction of the atrium.

This valve may be double or it may be cribriform.
