A 19-year-old female asked:

just out of interest, which ventricle chamber (the left or right) is supposed to be the biggest in the heart(not the muscle)?

Anatomy: The volumes of the ventricles are the same if all is normal. The mass of the left ventricle is normally more than the right. The shapes of the ventricles are different.
