Caption: FIGURE 2: Signal-to-noise ratio for the right coronary artery (RCA), left circumflex artery (LCx), left anterior descending artery (LAD), aorta, and muscle tissue for both study protocols and the standard of care protocol.
Conclusion: This study shows that patients of acute inferior wall MI undergoing primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) who have left circumflex artery as culprit vessel have a poor prognostic outcome as compared to patients having right coronary artery as culprit vessel.
Left main coronary artery stenosis area larger than 50% and left anterior descending branch, left circumflex artery and right coronary artery stenosis area larger than 75% were taken as the evaluation criteria; large branches such as diagonal branch, obtuse marginal branch and right ventricular branch were attributed to left anterior descending branch, left circumflex artery and right coronary artery.
The Left Main Coronary Artery (LMCA), Left Anterior Descending (LAD) and Left Circumflex Artery (LCX) were found to be of normal origins with no signs of pre atherosclerotic lesions.
Tanigawa et al (14) reported the case of a patient with myocardial infarction who was found to have a periarterial mass with luminal narrowing of the left circumflex artery and increased serum IgG4 level.
The coronaries were looked and palpated for thickened or calcified areas and one section each from left coronary artery, right coronary artery, left circumflex artery & aorta was given.

Diagnostic coronary angiography revealed distal left main trifurcation disease including significant stenosis in the distal left main trunk (LMT), ostial left anterior descending artery (LAD), and ostial left circumflex artery (LCX) (modified Medina classification 1-1-1-0) (Figure 1) [11].
On the 8[sup]th day after admission, coronary angiography (CAG) was performed to evaluate coronary vasculature, showing mild stenosis in right coronary artery, whereas 50–60% stenosis in left anterior descending artery (LAD) and chronic occlusion of distal left circumflex artery (LCX).
Anterior, inferior and lateral myocardial infarction was seen in 128 (64%), 67 (33.5%) and 5 (2.5%) patients respectively.Left anterior descending (LAD) was the commonest culprit artery in 128 (64%) followed by right coronary artery (RCA) and left circumflex artery (LCX) in 57 (28.5%) and 15 (7.5%) cases respectively.
Angioplasty of short chronic total occlusion (CTO) occlusion of native left circumflex artery was performed without difficulty and throughout the procedure there was no complication.
