Answer:

No.

Explanation:

Blood flow from the heart goes into your arteries ---> capillaries ---> veins and back to the heart.

valves are important to maintain a unidirectional flow of blood in your veins towards the heart. Simply put, it prevents the backflow of blood.

your capillaries have the smallest diameter among the blood vessels and they function for the exchange of nutrients, gases and waste between the blood and the cells.
