Left ventricle

Left ventricle. It is the portion of the heart with the greatest amount of muscle tissue because the left ventricle is the one that propels the blood to the aortic artery , which carries blood to most of the body . The valve that connects the left ventricle to the aortic artery is called the aortic valve .

Shape

The left ventricle is more elongated and more conical in shape than the right, and in a cross section its concavity has an oval or almost circular section. It forms a small part of the sternocostal surface and a significant percentage of the diaphragm surface of the heart; it also forms the vertex of the heart.

The left ventricle is thicker and more muscular than the right because it must pump blood at a higher pressure.
