Figure 56d

Angiogram from a Patient with Acute Posterolateral Myocardial Infarction.
The left-hand panel shows a culprit lesion in the circumflex artery,characterized by a long,scalloped,ulcerated, tight stenosis with haziness and ulceration (solid arrows) and with a total occlusion located just distally (open arrow).
The right-hand panel shows a cranial view of the left anterior descending coronary artery in the same patient,demonstrating a complex ulcerated stenosis with overhanging edges (arrows), anatomically remote from the culprit occlusion in the circumflex artery.
