The right ventricle (RV) is a complex structure with abstruse function that reveals important differences when compared to the left ventricle (LV), so it cannot be described as a simple geometric form and achromatic physiology. As an inference from this fact, in the present review, weaim to describe RV structure including theembryology, anatomy, and physiology and present a functional, hemodynamic, and imaging assessment of the normal and failing RV. So that, we conducted a thorough review based on the database sources such as MEDLINE, PubMed, Cochrane and Google scholar. No restrictions were placed on study date, study design, or language of publication. We searched all valuable and relevant information considering the anatomy, physiology, mechanics, hemodynamic and imaging evaluation of RV.
