Why is an artery an organ?
The Renal artery attaches to the Kidneys.
A part of an organ system, the circulatory system.
Artery is not an organ it is a means to carry pure blood from the heart to different organs. Arteries when approach near any organ it divides into arterioles. When arterioles enter the organ it again divides as blood capillaries.
The coronary artery supplies the heart muscles
No- it is a part of the Circulatory System.
No it is a vessel that carries blood
A "stenosis" is a narrowing of a luminal organ (such as a blood vessel). Thus, a "carotid artery stenosis" is a narrowing of a carotid artery.
Circulatory System, Its an artery. All veins, capillaries, arteries belong to the Circulatory System.
no it is an extension of the lung used to transport blood
organ is a structure made up of 2 or more no. of tissues(group of similar cells structurally and functionally)....artery is made up of endothelial cells, muscle fibres, elastic fibres etc placed in layers...hence is an organ. whereas capillaries only have endothelial cells.
Arteries, by some textbooks, are connective tissue.
An artery is made up of different tissues working for a function, including both muscle tissue and epithelial tissue. In contrast, the capillary consists of only one type of tissue, and so doesn't qualify as an organ.
All arteries carry blood from the heart to another organ in the body. The pulmonary artery carries blood from the heart to the lungs.
A coronary stent is an artificial support device placed in the coronary artery to keep the vessel open after treatment for coronary artery disease.
It depends where the cut is; if it's a major artery on a limb they can close the artery, if the blood is being lost through a vital organ, like the liver or heart, it needs to be stopped by isolating that part of the organ or patching it up
Component??? If organ: heart and lung if blood vessels: artery(vena cava, arterioles), vein(aorta, venules), pulmonary artery, and pulmonary vein
The liver, pancreas, and part of the stomach and small intestine.
female -uterine artery
IT PICKS IT UP WEN IT GOES THROUGH THE PULMINARY ARTERY
kidneys the nephrons in your kidneys, hence renal artery
The abdominal aorta is part of the circulatory system. It is the primary artery in the abdomen.
a blood clot is when your blood gets clotted on the artery which blocks the flow of blood.
heart disorder hypertension coronary artery disease arteriosclerosis's veins
What is decreased blood flow too a body part or organ caused by constricting or plugging of the supply artery?
Ischomia- its in chapter 49
coronary artery disease, cardiomyopathy, congenital diseases, and re-transplantation associated with organ rejection.
The aorta is sometimes concidered to be an organ because it is so large that it is made up of several different tissues (a simple definition of an organ being that it is made up of more than 1 tissue) although it is still only a very large artery and so is not usually described as an organ but a large blood vessel.
You did not specify which artery. If it is one supplying the heart, it will affect the heart's efficiency. If it becomes completely clogged, part of the heart muscle will die unless the blockage is relieved. If it is an artery to a limb or organ, the heart will have to work harder, and the amount of blood it can push through the artery will slowly become lessened. Eventually, there will be problems at the… Read More
pulmonary refers to the lungs. The pulmonary artery leads to the lungs, its name indicating where the blood within it goes to. It is the only artery that goes towards the lungs, and the only one carrying de-oxygenated blood.
Internal carotid artey passes through the carotid canal and takes blood to the brain
Every organ has a blood supply that arrives in an artery, and departs in a vein. All organs depend on a blood supply.
Brain, artery's help pump blood to the heart which pumps it to the brain
Any structure in the body, composed of living cells, that performs a specific function, qualifies as an organ.
The vena cava is the biggest artery in the body that is attached to the heart, so i would say the cardiovascular system.
Junk food can damage your organ systems by clogging your arteries, cause damage to the artery walls causing dangerous blood clots. Junk food can also cause obesity if not eaten in moderation.
You may be asking about the artery often found in chicken thighs. If it is hollow like a straw and soft then it is most likely an artery from the heart. If it is solid and long, it could be a tendon which is part of the muscular system. Both of these things are found in chicken thighs.
The skin. The largest external organ, which is also the largest organ in general, is the skin. The longest bone in the human body is the femur. The largest artery is the aorta and the largest vein is the inferior vena cava. The largest internal organ is the liver. It is also the heaviest organ, with an average of 1.6 kilograms (3.5 pounds). The longest muscle is the sartorius muscle in the thigh. The longest… Read More
because the coronary artery supplies the blood to the heart. And blood supply plays a very important role in functioning of an organ.
Vascular tissues usually make up an artery that carries blood to and from the heart, or they can make up the heart itself. Remember! Cell-tissue-organ-organism!
Complete splenectomy.REMOVAL OF RUPTURED SPLEEN. When the spleen has been ruptured by trauma, the surgeon approaches the organ from its underside and fastens the splenic artery.
Coronary Atherosclerosis: is a condition in which the arteries of the heart become clogged with fatty plaque build-up that restricts the amount of blood flow through the arteries while simultaneously causing hardening of the arterial walls. Native Coronary Artery: is an organ for which a transplant or bypass has been implanted
Posterior Division: Iliolumbar artery, lateral sacral artery, superior gluteal artery. Anterior Division: inferior gluteal artery, middle rectal artery, uterine artery, obturator artery, inferior vesical artery, superior vesical artery, obliterated umbilical artery, internal pudendal artery
The aorta is an artery, and arteries are types of blood vessels. So the aorta would be considered part of the cardiovascular system (heart). http://www.cancerindex.org/medterm/medtm8.htm
Any type of wound can be dangerous an run the risk of infection. The most fatal type of wound is one that has punctured a major organ, or severed a major artery.

The vessel after the axillary artery, before it branches into the radial artery and ulnar artery is called the brachial artery.
