Ramus intermedius-LCA- Cardiac CT
The left main coronary artery arises from above the left portion of the aortic valve and then usually divides into two branches, known as the left anterior descending (LAD) and the circumflex coronary arteries. In some patients (15%), a third branch arises in between the LAD and the Circumflex. This is known as the ramus intermediate, or optional diagonal coronary artery. This intermediate branche behaves as a diagonal branch of the Cx.
