Dr. Francis Uricchio
Cardiology 39 years experience
Aorta: The aortic valve is the last valve crossed by the blood as it leaves the heart. Once blood leaves the heart, crossing the aortic valve, it enters the aorta (the largest artery of the body).
Dr. Joel Doyon
Dentistry - Cosmetic 37 years experience
Left ventricle: Blood will enter the left ventricle to be then pumped through the aorta to the rest of the body.
