Bronchial Artery: The bronchial artery is a major systemic artery that branches off from the thoracic aorta in the thorax. The bronchial artery supplies vital oxygenated blood and nutrients to the lungs, specifically the bronchi, bronchioles and lung connective tissue. Blood flows from the left ventricle of the heart into the ascending aorta and aortic arch then into the thoracic aorta and into the bronchial artery.
Conditions that can afflict the bronchial artery include bronchial artery sclerosis, diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol, occlusion, aneurysm, thrombosis, embolism, atherosclerosis, and trauma.
