Example text

The left anterior bundle branch, or left anterior fascicle, is approximately 25 mm long and 3 mm thick. It usually arises directly from the common left bundle after the origin of the posterior fascicle and close to the origin of the right bundle. It branches to the anterior septum and courses over the left ventricular anterior (superior) wall to the anterior papillary muscle, crossing the aortic outflow tract. Anterior and septal myocardial infarctions and aortic valve dysfunction often affect the left anterior bundle branch.

RA, right atrium; RV, right ventricle; LA, left atrium; LV, left ventricle. , & Watson, H. [1978]. Clinical anatomy of the heart [p. 203]. qxd 11/21/11 10:30 AM Page 11 CHAPTER 1 / Cardiac Anatomy and Physiology 11 ■ Figure 1-13 Principal arteries and veins on the inferopos- terior surfaces of the heart. This schematic drawing illustrates the heart tilted upward at a nonphysiological angle; normally, little of the inferior cardiac surface is visible posteriorly. The right coronary artery is shown to cross the crux and to supply the atrioventricular node.

The right atrial branch proceeds cranially toward the right heart border and it perfuses the right atrium. The acute marginal branch is a fairly large branch of the right coronary artery. It originates at the acute margin of the heart near the right atrial artery and courses in the opposite direction, toward the apex. It perfuses the inferior and diaphragmatic surfaces of the right ventricle and occasionally the posterior apical portion of the interventricular septum. The AV nodal branch is slender and straight.
