In brief: blood to heart

The coronary arteries supply blood to the heart muscle itself.
There are usually 3 - the left anterior descending, circumflex, and right coronary. Closure or blockage of one of these main arteries, or a branch vessel, from cholesterol or a clot, causes a heart attack or angina (chest pain).
