Summary Information: Right Coronary Artery

Right Coronary Artery: The right 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 right coronary artery.

From the right coronary artery, blood further flows into arterial branches and coronary capillaries, where oxygen is released into the heart muscle, or myocardium.

Conditions that afflict the right coronary artery include myocardial infarction, heart disease, angina, cardiac arrest, congenital anomalies, hypertension and atherosclerosis.
