Why is the left ventricle wall thicker than the right ventricle?
Asked by | 30th Jul, 2009, 01:12: PM
Wall of right ventricle is thinner than the left one, since it has to push blood only up to the lungs through the pulmonary aorta. But the left ventricle has to push blood to all parts of the body including the extremities. Hence its wall has to be quite thick.
