Ventricular outflow tract
|This does not cite any sources. (February 2007) (Learn how and when to remove this template message)|
The right ventricular outflow tract (RVOT) is an infundibular extension of the ventricular cavity which connects to the pulmonary artery. The left ventricular outflow tract (LVOT), which connects to the aorta, is nearly indistinguishable from the rest of the ventricle. The outflow tract is derived from the secondary heart field, during cardiogenesis.
A form of ventricular tachycardia originating from this anatomical structure is called RVOT tachycardia.
