Structural Heart Program
The Structural Heart Program at Baptist led by Ruby Satpathy, MD, FACC, FSCAI, is comprised of a collaborative team of interventional cardiologists and cardiothoracic surgeons specializing in the diagnosis and treatment of conditions affecting the valves and other vital structures of the heart. Patients throughout the region benefit from our personalized, coordinated care and comprehensive range of medical and surgical treatment options.
Heart Structures — Atria, Ventricles and Valves
The heart’s structures include four chambers -- two atria and two ventricles — as well as valves that keep the blood flowing in the right direction. The four main valves in the heart are the mitral valve, tricuspid valve, aortic valve and pulmonary valve. Together, the heart’s structures work to keep blood flowing through the body.
