Abstract


The aim of our present study is to determine the incidence of trifurcation of left coronary artery in 75 adult human hearts of Hyderabad, Karnataka region. The incidence of trifurcation of left coronary artery in our present study is 14.5%. Since the left main coronary artery supplies the majority of the left ventricle of the heart and as the diseases of left coronary artery are most common, the management of diseases involving the left coronary artery trifurcation is very challenging. Hence this study done involving trifurcation of left coronary artery will be helpful to the physicians, vascular surgeons and cardiac surgeons of this region.
