Summary Information: Coronary Sinus

Coronary Sinus: The coronary sinus is the large vein at the back of the heart into which most of the coronary veins drain. The coronary sinus carries deoxygenated blood and carbon dioxide from the coronary veins to the right atrium of the heart. From the heart blood is pumped to the lungs to release the carbon dioxide and pick up oxygen.

Conditions that can directly or indirectly afflict the coronary sinus include myocardial infarction, cardiac arrhythmia, heart disease, angina, cardiac arrest and atherosclerosis.
