Where is the LAD artery located?

Where is the LAD artery located?

Where is the LAD artery located?

Structure and Function The left anterior descending artery (LAD) is the largest coronary artery runs anterior to the interventricular septum in the anterior interventricular groove, extending from the base of the heart to the apex.

Where is the RCA located in the heart?

In the blood supply of the heart, the right coronary artery (RCA) is an artery originating above the right cusp of the aortic valve, at the right aortic sinus in the heart. It travels down the right coronary sulcus, towards the crux of the heart. It supplies the right side of the heart, and the interventricular septum.

Where is the intermediate artery?

The Left Coronary Artery In some patients, there is a third artery that branches off the left main called the intermediate artery. This vessel usually supplies the left margin of the heart [3, 4].

Where is the anterior wall of the heart?

Left anterior descending artery, which supplies blood to the front (anterior wall) and part of the side (anterolateral wall) of the left ventricle, to the top of the left ventricle, and to most of the wall between the ventricles (interventricular septum).

What part of heart is most anterior?

right ventricle
The right ventricle (RV) is the most anterior of the four heart chambers.

How do I know if I have anterior or posterior heart?

The anterior interventricular sulcus is visible on the anterior surface of the heart, whereas the posterior interventricular sulcus is visible on the posterior surface of the heart.

What is the most anterior heart valve of the human body?

pulmonic valve
The pulmonic valve is the most anterior valve of the heart, located between the right ventricular outflow tract and the main pulmonary artery (see Fig. 3.6). It is the mirror image of the aortic valve, containing right, left, and anterior cusps (or leaflets) that are thinner than those of the aortic valve.

How can you tell which side of the heart is anterior and posterior?

How can you tell which side of the heart is the anterior surface and which side is the posterior surface? The anterior is the side that the apex is pointing to. The posterior surface lies opposite to the apex.
