Source: WordNet 2.1
Left Coronary Artery: The left coronary artery supplies the heart, or myocardium, with blood. The four 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. In most people, the left coronary artery then divides into two branches, the left anterior descending artery and the left circumflex artery. Some people have a third branch of the left coronary artery. Blood further flows from these arteries into 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, congenital anomalies, hypertension and atherosclerosis.
