Objectives: The aorto-mitral vicinity is of great clinical and surgical importance, because of its involvement in the anatomical and functional integrity of these two valves. We propose a multimedia learning guide for self-modelling of aorto-mitral valves to enhance the comprehension of its 3D complexity relationship Methods: The left sided heart was constructed by usage available materials, in which its components was modelled according different atlases and heart specimens, then we established an effective multimedia learning guide describing the modelling steps of the left-sided heart. 7 cardiothoracic surgery trainees constructed the proposed model following the instructions of the proposed multimedia learning guide. The results reviewed by a senior surgeon. Results: Self Modelling of the left sided heart and its related structures results in improving of 3D understanding of the aorto-mitral valves relationship. The creation of the aortomitral angle leads to understanding the roll of this parameter in systolic anterior motion phenomenon. The trainees analyzed the architecture of the aorto-mitral continuity and its significance in mitral anuloplasty sizing. They identified the aortic root component and its relationship to mitral valve. Conclusion: The self-building of aortic root simulator under the direction of the multimedia guide results in improvement of comprehension of complexity of aortic root structures.
