Abstract

The distribution and severity of coronary artery disease and left ventricular dysfunction were evaluated in 103 patients with single coronary artery disease and angina pectoris. The coronary arterial patterns were separated into right (76), mixed (18), and left (9) systems depending upon the blood supply to the inferior surface of the left ventricle. The following relationships were noted: (1) In patients with single coronary artery disease and angina pectoris, coronary arterial lesions are similar among right, mixed, and left systems. (2) In order of frequency, single coronary artery disease occurred most commonly in the left anterior descending coronary artery (55), next most commonly in the right coronary artery (36), and least commonly in the circumflex/obtuse marginal coronary artery (12). (3) Left ventricular wall motion abnormalities were seen in descending order of frequency: patients with right coronary artery (50%), left anterior descending coronary artery (36%), and circumflex/obtuse marginal coronary artery (25%) disease.
