Figure 3: In the heart illustrated, there is double inlet to, and double outlet from a dominant left ventricle. The arterial trunks are seen arising in parallel fashion from the left ventricle, with the aorta anterior and to the left. On the anterior and right-sided shoulder of the dominant left ventricle, however, there is still a second chamber to be seen, fed through a ventricular septal defect. This chamber is the apical trabecular component of the right ventricle (RV), identified because of its coarse trabeculations
