Dominant Circumflex Artery Angiogram

Dominant circumflex artery angiogram

This is an angiogram of a left coronary artery (LCA).  The circumflex artery, labelled CX, is dominant, meaning that it connects to the posterior descending artery and perfuses the posterior and inferior walls of the left ventricle.  Approximately 15-18% of the population has a dominant circumflex artery.  In about 80-85% of people, the right coronary artery (RCA), perfuses the inferior wall.

Angiogram, Angioplasty of LAD, Coronary artery disease image

This image is taken from the patient featured in our Teaching Series, AWMI.  This shot shows the left anterior descending artery just after a stent has been placed and blood flow returned.  There had been a 100% occlusion prior to the angioplasty.  The circumflex and obtuse marginal arteries show evidence of severe coronary artery disease and multiple partial obstructions, and were also repaired.

Inferior Wall M.I. With Angiogram and Ventriculogram

Sun, 03/17/2013 - 19:42 -- Dawn

This ECG was taken from a 66-year-old woman who presented to the emergency department complaining of chest pain and shortness of breath.  She attributed her symptoms to her COPD, but stated that her aerosol treatment had not helped.  She waited for some time before deciding to go to the hospital, then drove herself. In the emergency department, she had blood drawn, an I.V. started, and an aerosol treatment of albuterol.  She was then taken to the radiology dept.
