Anatomy of the heart

The heart is made up of four cavities, two atria and two ventricles. The atria are separated from each other by an interatrial wall or septum, and the ventricles by an interventricular wall or septum. Between the atrium and the ventricle there is the atrioventricular valve. The veins arrive into the atria and the major arteries leave the ventricles. Between the ventricle and its artery outlet there is the semilunar valve. The heart is divided into the right and left sides.
