The coronary arteries are the arterial blood vessels of coronary circulation, which transport oxygenated blood to the heart muscle.
Several terms redirect here.
Further circulatory routes are associated, such as the coronary circulation to the heart itself, the cerebral circulation to the brain, renal circulation to the kidneys, and bronchial circulation to the bronchi in the lungs.
One of three types of vertebrate muscle tissue, with the other two being skeletal muscle and smooth muscle.
The cardiac muscle (myocardium) forms a thick middle layer between the outer layer of the heart wall (the pericardium) and the inner layer (the endocardium), with blood supplied via the coronary circulation.
In the blood supply of the heart, the right coronary artery (RCA) is an artery originating above the right cusp of the aortic valve, at the right aortic sinus in the heart.
Coronary ischemia, myocardial ischemia, or cardiac ischemia, is a medical term for a reduced blood flow in the coronary circulation through the coronary arteries.
Blood vessel in humans and most other animals that takes blood away from the heart to one or more parts of the body (tissues, lungs, brain etc.).
Coronary arteries also aid the heart in pumping blood by sending oxygenated blood to the heart, allowing the muscles to function.
Muscular organ in most animals that pumps blood through the blood vessels of the circulatory system.
It receives blood from the great cardiac vein (receiving the left atrium and both ventricles), the posterior cardiac vein (draining the back of the left ventricle), the middle cardiac vein (draining the bottom of the left and right ventricles), and small cardiac veins.
In the coronary circulation, the posterior interventricular artery (PIV, PIA, or PIVA), most often called the posterior descending artery (PDA), is an artery running in the posterior interventricular sulcus to the apex of the heart where it meets with the anterior interventricular artery or also known as Left Anterior Descending artery.
Artery of the heart.
(See Coronary circulation for description of dominance.)
Pattern of the disease arteriosclerosis in which the wall of the artery develops abnormalities, called lesions.
WS patients develop a considerable burden of atherosclerotic plaques in their coronary arteries and aorta: calcification of the aortic valve is also frequently observed.
