Mechanical stimulation has important consequences for myocardial function. However, this stimulation and the response to it, is not uniform. The right ventricle is thinner walled and operates at lower pressure than the left ventricle. Within the ventricles, differences in the orientation of myocardial fibres exist. These differences produce inhomogeneity in the stress and strain between and across the ventricles. Possibly as a result of these variations in mechanical stimulation, there are well… CONTINUE READING
