Analysis of the total lumen of circumflex branch of l eft coronary artery in norm and in myocardial infarction

Alexandr Korobkeev; Oxana Lezhnina;

Subepicardial branchings of circumflex branch of left coronary artery were studied on 35 hearts as well as 50 lifetime coronarographies in people from 36 to 74 years old with different variants of branching of the coronary arteries in norm and in myocardial infarction.
The results of a comparative analysis of the values of the total cross-sectional area of the circumflex branch of humans in the second period of mature age and elderly age with left, right, and uniform variants of coronary branching without disturbing the blood flow and pathology were introduced.
