Left Anterior Descending Artery: The left anterior descending artery supplies the heart, or myocardium, with blood. The chambers of the heart need a large supply of freshly oxygenated blood to function properly and effectively pump blood to the rest of organs and areas of the body. Blood flows from the heart into the aorta into the left coronary artery, which branches into the left anterior descending artery and the left circumflex artery. Blood further flows from the left anterior descending artery into arterial branches and coronary capillaries, where oxygen is released into the heart muscle, or myocardium.
Conditions that afflict the left anterior descending artery include myocardial infarction, heart disease, angina, cardiac arrest, hypertension and atherosclerosis.
