Thrombolysis – part 2

Cardiology

Continued from previous question.

In this patient (inferior MI), which coronary artery(s)/ arterial territory is most likely to be affected?

  • Left Main Stem
  • Left Anterior descending
  • Right coronary artery
  • Left Obtuse Marginal
  • Circumclex

Right coronary artery.

Remember coronary artery supply comes from arteries originating from the aorta.

Left main stem splits into LAD (anterior V1-3) and Circumflex Lateral (V4-6).

Right coronary artery supplies inferior territory (II III AVF).
