the arteries that supply blood to the heat which makes it pump so that it can distibute blood throughout the body.when they are atherosclerotic, they are in the same place but blocked by plaque, which causes difficulty getting blood to the heart and causing a heart attack.
Why do you expect others to help you with your home work if you do not have the manners to ask for the help in a polite way.I’m sure this will be deleted but think next time you ask for help.You have issued a demand not asked a question!!
atherosclerotic plaque formation:excess LDL cholesterol is oxidized by free radicles & then taken up (phagocytosed) by macrophages (tissue monocytes) & transform into faom cells that start secreting substances promoting endothelial cell prolifration (endothelium = cells lining the inside of vesseles).. foam cells accumulate over injured endothelium and form “fatty streaks”..which progress into the atherosclerotic plaque…..anatomy…there is the left main coronary artery & the right coronary artery..all arising from the ascending aorta..just above the aortic valve…cardiac (heart) perfusion occures during diastole ( heart relaxarion) (not as the rest of the body..during systole ( heart contraction)..if u want further info on the coronary anatomy..just ask..
