Abstract

Atherosclerosis of coronary arteries is a common phenomenon seen to be prevalent worldwide. The advent of coronary arteriography has made it possible, in vivo, to indicate the localization, extent and severity of disease. The left anterior descending artery (LAD) is said to be the most commonly involved vessel in coronary atherosclerosis. In the present study, angiographic evaluation of the coronary arteries was done to find out the artery most commonly involved in atherosclerosis and also the most common site of the artery showing occlusion. Out of 350 cases studied, 213 showed occlusion. LAD was the most commonly involved artery to show occlusion [162 cases,76%] followed by right coronary artery (RCA) [92 cases, 43%]. Irrespective of the vessels involved, the proximal segment of the arteries was the site where disease tend to cluster.
