coronary Any structure that encircles like
a crown. The term usually refers to the
coronary arteries encircling the heart. It is
also sometimes used as a nonmedical
term for a heart attack (see myocardial infarction).
coronary artery Either of the 2 main
arteries that supply the tissues of the
heart with oxygen-rich blood. These
arteries, known as the left and right main
coronary arteries, arise directly from the
aorta. The term coronary artery is also
applied to any of the arteries that branch
off from the main coronary arteries, such
as the left circumflex artery and the left
anterior descending artery. Blockage of a
coronary artery as a result of atherosclerosis
can lead to myocardial infarction.
(See also coronary artery disease.)
