What Are the Smallest Arteries Called?

Answer

The smallest arteries are called arterioles and they play a vital role in microcirculation. Microcirculation is associated with the distribution of blood from arterioles to capillaries, and finally to venules. The liver, spleen and bone marrow have vessel systems that are called sinusoids instead of capillaries.
