Is there a functional reason why the right side of the heart has a tricuspid valve while the left has a bicuspid one? Why is it necessary that the right atrioventricular valve be 3-cusped?

  • $\begingroup$ That's fine, but if you don't include answers the questions I asked in your post, then we have to take that on faith — if you aren't willing to make that effort and have little reputation here why should we believe you? Many questions get asked here where little (or no) effort has been made, or the effort has been misdirected — if you tell us what you've tried then someone may be able to help ... $\endgroup$
