Author(s):GA Jos Hemalatha, K. Arumugam* and J. Sreevidya

Aim: To study the number, level of left coronary Ostia, branching pattern of the left coronary artery, and the length of the stem of the left coronary artery. Materials and Methods: This study is conducted on 5 cadaver hearts in the department of Anatomy of college. Results: In the present study about 92% of specimens have single Ostia and 8% of specimens have double Ostia. About 64% of heart coronary Ostia are below the sino-tubular junction and about 36% are above the sino-tubular junction. Left coronary artery bifurcates in 84% of specimens and 16% of specimens trifurcate. The length of the stem of the left coronary artery is between 12.45 mm to 25.2 mm and the external diameter of the left coronary artery is between 2.39 mm to 6.58 mm. Conclusion: Studying the variations of the coronary artery is helpful for Interventional Cardiologists and Radiologists to interrupt the various diagnostic and therapeutic procedures.
