This sqadia.com medical video lecture provides an in-detail elucidation of the coronary arteries. Commencing from the coronary circulation and both the coronary arteries (left and right) have been explained quite comprehensively. Another significant phenomenon of coronary dominance including right, or left dominance and codominance has been delineated. Additionally, certain variations, aneurysms and hemodynamics have been highlighted. Towards the end, coronary artery disease and its diagnosis and intervention strategies have been conversed about.
The prime focus of this section is on the coronary circulation. Initially, the arterial supply to the heart along with the function of the coronary arteries has been explained. Following this, coronary circulation has been comprehensively elaborated. Conclusively, the educator has delineated about the coronary artery profusion including both the left ventricular relaxation and contraction along with the blood pressure.
Right Coronary Artery
Right coronary artery is the key objective of this section. In the beginning, the point of origin of right coronary artery alongside the regions which it supplies has been highlighted. Additionally, various branches of RCA and all the types of coronary dominance have been expansively elaborated. The coronary dominance has three types viz right or left dominance and codominance. These have been discussed under separate heads.
Left Coronary Artery
This section emphasizes on the left coronary artery. Initially, its point of origin and certain branches have been brought into consideration. Furthermore, the course of LCA has been talked about, in-detail. Towards the end, blockage of this artery owing to the plaque formation has been elucidated.
Variation and Aneurysms
Variation and aneurysms have been highlighted in this section. Primarily, coronary occlusion sites have been explained. Following that, variations alongside coronary aneurysms including fistulas have been elaborated quite comprehensively. Moreover, hemodynamics has been delineated.
Coronary Artery Disease
Coronary artery disease has been discussed expansively in this section. In the beginning, coronary artery disease has been talked about. Furthermore, causes including atherosclerosis alongside its symptoms (general and in women) has been explained. In the end, various diagnostic techniques and treatment strategies have been mentioned. In the former, ECG, ECG and cardiac catheterization has been highlighted whereas, in the latter beta blockers, angiotensin converting enzymes have been discussed.
