Coronary Capillaries: The coronary capillaries are tiny blood vessels that supply the heart, or myocardium, with freshly oxygenated blood and pick up carbon dioxide from the heart's cells to be transported through the circulatory system to the lungs. Blood flows from the heart into the aorta into the coronary arteries then flows into arterial branches and coronary capillaries. The coronary capillaries allow for the exchange of blood gasses with the cells of the heart. In this process, oxygen is released from the blood and carbon dioxide is picked up. Deoxygenated blood and carbon dioxide returns to the right atrium of the heart through the coronary circulatory system and is pumped to the lungs to pick up fresh oxygen and release carbon dioxide.
Conditions that afflict the coronary capillaries include myocardial infarction, heart disease, angina, cardiac arrest, hypertension and atherosclerosis.
