The left ventricle is the lower left-hand chamber of the heart. Together with the right ventricle, it forces blood out of the heart into the arteries to be carried back to the various sites throughout the body. The left ventricle has a much thicker wall than the right ventricle. It must force blood to all other parts of the body against a great flow of resistance, so the walls are stronger than that of the right ventricle.
