Summary Information: Left ventricle

Left ventricle: The left ventricular of the heart is a muscular pumping chamber in the heart and a part of the cardiovascular system. The left ventricle receives freshly oxygenated blood from the lungs via the pulmonary veins and the left atrium. The left ventricle then pumps the blood to the rest of the body through the aorta.

In a healthy person, the left ventricle works with the other three chambers of the heart to pump and move blood in a regular, strong rhythm that is activated by an electrical conduction system. The left ventricle of the heart is supplied with blood by the coronary arteries.

Conditions that afflict the left ventricle of the heart include myocardial infarction, infection, heart disease, cardiac arrhythmias, angina, trauma, heart failure, birth defects, cardiac arrest, and atherosclerosis.
