What are arterioles?

Arterioles are small vessels into which blood passes from the arteries. Arterioles can prevent blood from flowing into the capillaries, this can be done because they have sphincters just at the point where they enter the capillaries. These sphincters are circular muscle fibers which can contract and stop the flow of blood.
