CORONARY CIRCULATIONCORONARY CIRCULATION
BLOOD SUPPLY OF THE HEART:a)Arterial supply:-The cardiac muscle is supplied by the first two branches of the aorta i.e. right & left coronary arteries.
-
The coronary arteries branch freely to form a rich capillarynetwork. There is about one capillary for each cardiacmuscle fiber.
-
Coronary arteries are considered as functional endarteries. There are small anostomatic connectionsbetween the small branches of the two coronary arteriesand between the coronary arterioles and extra cardiacarterioles.
