The reaction of P[A.sub.6] with LCX (P[A.sub.6]-g-LCX) was conducted in the same way as aforementioned preparation of P[A.sub.6]-g-LCX-PAH, and the formaldehyde adsorbed amount mg/g (Q) of these materials was evaluated according to the standard method of GBl3197-9.
The anomalous origin of LCX artery and its retro-aortic course is usually considered as one of the benign anomalies of the coronary artery tree in the absence of atherosclerosis (1, 4).
* PCABS, pediatric coronary artery bypass surgery; ITA, internal thoracic artery; LAD, left anterior descending artery; RCA, right coronary artery; SVG, saphenous vein graft; LCX, left circumflex artery.
In the dispersed particle-fluid flow model, high turbulent flow appears in the LCA region and the particles continue to proportionally flow from LCA to LAD and LCX as displayed in Figure 7(d).
In one of these patients, which was published as a case report previously [21], LCx originated from the proximal RCA and followed the retroaortic course, and the left anterior descending (LAD) originated from the RCS by following the pathway on the anterior free wall.
The patients were divided into three groups as proximal segments encompassing the left main coronary artery (LMCA), proximal RCA, proximal LAD, proximal LCX; the middle segment including the middle RCA, middle LAD, middle LCX, diagonal 1-2, acute marginal 1-2, obtuse marginal 1-2; and the distal segment covering the distal LAD, distal RCA, distal LCX, posterior descending, and posterior lateral.
LCX is modeled in different shapes according to requirements.
Single vessel disease was considered present if there was more than 70.0% diameter stenosis on visual assessment in the left anterior descending (LAD), left circumflex (LCX), right coronary (RCA) arteries, or a major branch, or > 50.0% left main stenosis or for in-stent restenosis.
These measurements were performed in the proximal coronary segment of the main coronary arteries, the right coronary artery (RCA), the left circumflex artery (LCx), and the left anterior descending artery (LAD), and in the aorta and the heart muscle tissue next to the aortic valve.
There is, then, the decision between the consumption of two goods, mutually exclusive: the net benefits generated by ITG 1000 (Bnf ITG) and the net benefits generated by the cash account ledger (Bnf LCX).
The left main coronary artery differs in the length before the left anterior descending artery (LDA) and left circumflex artery (LCX) branches arise from it.
