Left Pulmonary Artery

Summary Information: Left Pulmonary Artery

Left Pulmonary Artery: The left pulmonary artery is one of two main branches of the main pulmonary artery. The left pulmonary artery carries deoxygenated blood from the main pulmonary artery to the smaller arteries, arterioles, and capillaries of the left lung. Gas exchange occurs where the tiny capillaries surround and come in contact with the alveoli. Here the blood cells release carbon dioxide and pick up fresh oxygen.

Conditions that can afflict the left pulmonary artery include trauma, pulmonary hypertension, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and transposition of the great vessels.
