What is RCA and lad?
Beside this, what is LAD LCX RCA?
Normally, there are three main coronary arteries, the right coronary artery (RCA), left circumflex artery (LCX) and left anterior descending (LAD), with the LCX and LAD arteries arising from a common stem, the left main coronary artery (LMCA).
Furthermore, why is Lad most commonly occluded? The LAD artery is the most commonly occluded of the coronary arteries. It provides the major blood supply to the interventricular septum, and thus bundle branches of the conducting system. The result is a "block" of impulse conduction between the atria and the ventricles known as "right/left bundle branch block."
Keeping this in view, what does RCA dominant mean?
In 85% of patients the right coronary artery (RCA) is said to be "dominant" because it supplies circulation to the inferior portion of the interventricular septum via the right posterior descending coronary artery or PDA branch. The SP supply blood to the lower portion of the IV septum.
