This chapter introduces the primary aspects of right heart failure, a crucial and thus far underrepresented area of study. Exploring right ventricular structure and function in detail from embryology through to adulthood, this chapter highlights the anatomic and functional differences between the right and left ventricle before discussing adaptive and maladaptive right ventricular remodelling.
