Introduction: The present study shares the knowledge of normal and the variant anatomy in the branching pattern of main trunk of Left coronary artery which has a vital role in clinical application to overcome the problems that encounter during various surgical procedures of heart.
Materials and methods: The study was conducted in 50 formalin fixed human cadaveric hearts of both sexes obtained from the department of Anatomy and carefully dissected to observe the main trunk of left coronary artery
Results: It is noticed that Left coronary artery shows bifurcation in 60%, trifurcation in 28%, and quadrifurcation in 10% and pentafurcation in 2% of specimens.
Conclusion: The present study helps the physician and the cardiac surgeons for interpretation of the coronary angiograms and their surgical repair.
