English term or phrase: commissural posts
In a valve prothesis procedure
"If the "skirt" of the prothesis is longer than the commissural posts the positioning of the sutures are moved higher up on the "skirt""
Thanks.

soportes de las comisuras
Explanation:
Valvular prostheses have widely varying designs, although the description "skirt" suggests a flexible prosthesis (as opposed to a disk or ball-in-cage type). For commissural post I would go with the more general "soporte" rather than "cresta".

La cresta, que es el soporte de la comisura, de la nueva prótesis posee una forma de "raqueta" de diseño único. La concepción básica ha sido desarrollar un stent altamente flexible con una expansión centrífuga durante la sístole. Esto se produce gracias a la configuración en forma de raqueta de la cresta. El orificio valvular flexible absorbe el movimiento del anillo aórtico durante el ciclo cardíaco.

Muchas gracias. Creo que voy a usar el término que has sugerido pues como tu dices parece más general.
