Coronary Arteries

Summary Information: Coronary Arteries

Coronary Arteries: The coronary arteries supply the heart, or myocardium, with blood.

The heart requires a large supply of freshly oxygenated blood to function properly and effectively pump blood to the rest of organs and areas of the body. The coronary arteries include the right coronary artery and the left coronary. Blood flows from the heart into the aorta into the coronary arteries. Blood then flows into the arterial branches and coronary capillaries, where oxygen is released into the heart muscle, or myocardium.

Conditions that afflict the coronary arteries include myocardial infarction, heart disease, angina, cardiac arrest, hypertension and atherosclerosis.
