How to use Left-ventricle in a sentence
The second loop in the system involves the blood now being pumped from the left ventricle around the body.
The aorta in turn, arises from the left ventricle which is the main pumping chamber of the heart.
This forces blood into the left atrium right atrium left ventricle right ventricle which then contracts.
The aorta is the large artery that takes blood from the left ventricle of the heart to the body.
Aortic valve-The valve between the heart's left ventricle and ascending aorta that prevents regurgitation of blood back into the left ventricle.Advertisement
In serious cases, it causes the left ventricle of the heart to enlarge and may eventually lead to heart failure.
It involves a constricture of the aorta, the main artery that delivers blood from the left ventricle of the heart to the rest of the body.
In asymptomatic children with COA, the descending aorta receives left ventricle blood through the ascending aorta; these children have fewer, if any, associated cardiac abnormalities.
Blood normally leaves the heart by way of the left ventricle and is distributed to the body through the arteries.
Among the consequences of COA is an enlargement of the left ventricle (ventricular hypertrophy) in response to increased back-pressure of the blood and the demand for more blood by the lower body.Advertisement
Infants frequently have an abnormal electrocardiogram (ECG) that indicates that the right or both ventricles are enlarged, while in older children the ECG may be normal or show that the left ventricle is enlarged.
As the left ventricle works harder to pump blood through the body, it becomes enlarged.
Subaortic stenosis is a narrowing of the left ventricle below the aortic valve that limits the flow of blood from the left ventricle.
Arterial switch, to correct transposition of the great arteries, involves connecting the aorta to the left ventricle and connecting the pulmonary artery to the right ventricle.
For transposition of the great arteries, venous switch creates a tunnel inside the atria to re-direct oxygen-rich blood to the right ventricle and aorta, and venous blood to the left ventricle and pulmonary artery.Advertisement
Diastolic blood pressure-Diastole is the period in which the left ventricle relaxes so it can refill with blood; diastolic pressure is therefore measured during diastole.
The aorta carries blood from the left ventricle to the vessels of the rest of the body.
After the lungs, the blood flows to the left atrium, then the left ventricle pumps the blood out through the aorta to the rest of the body, thereby supplying the body with oxygenated blood.
At the same time, blood in the lungs goes to the left atrium, the left ventricle, but then back to the lungs rather than going to the body because the pulmonary artery is connected to the left ventricle.
The left ventricle operates at pressures about four times as high as the right ventricle.Advertisement
The effects are an increase in stroke volume or the amount of blood flow caused by a single contraction of the left ventricle.
