What Are The Functions Of Coronary Arteries And Veins
Arteries are defined as blood vessels which carry blood away from the heart (to either the body or lungs). Arteries: higher pressure, thicker walls, stretch (pulse) with each heart contraction & deliver blood to the arterioles which control the flow to individual capillaries. Veins are blood vessels which carry blood from capillaries back to the heart (body to right heart; ...Read more
Coronary A/V: The coronary arteries take blood from the aorta to the heart and the coronary veins drain the blood from the heart. The heart is a muscle, therefore, it requires blood to function. When a coronary artery becomes blocked then a heart attack can occur. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Yes: Yes, the coronaryveins are thin walled vessels like all veins. The arteries are thicker, muscular walled structures as the coronary arteries actively dilate and contract in response to cardiac demands and various signals. In many instances, the coronary venous structures travel right next to the arteries. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Feed heart muscle: In humans usually two main coronary arteries come off the aorta to feed the heart muscle. The right coronary feeds the right side of the heart and some of the muscular wall between the two sides. The left coronary divides into the left anterior descending artery and the circumflex coronary artery. The arteries bring oxygen and food to heart muscle cells. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Picture this: The coronary arteries branch off from the walls of the aorta, and dive down into the outer layer of the heart mucle. On the left side, the left main artery branches into the left anterior decending (lad), which runs down the front wall of the heart, and the circumflex, which runs around the lateral wall. On the right, the right coronary artery runs along the bottom wall of the heart. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
