French term or phrase: plaques sur la inférieure à 40%
From a hospital report. The whole sentence is:

Angor de Novo sur sténose du tronc gauche et IVA 80% (plaques sur la inférieure à 40%)


Does this make sense to anyone, or is there a word missing? From conext, any ideas what this might be?

English translation:40% stenosis on the PDA (Posterior Descending Artery)
Explanation:
Well, I think they are talking about the "artere interventriculaire inférieure" of "La Coronaire Droite" when they refer to "plaques sur la infériere".

La Coronaire Droite
Elle naît du flanc droit de l’aorte immédiatement au-dessus du bord libre de la valvule antérieure droite au niveau du sinus de Valsalva.
Son calibre est de 3,5mm environ. Elle est donc plus petite que la gauche.
Elle s’insinue sous l’auricule droite et va rejoindre le sillon inter-atrio-ventriculaire. Elle contourne le bord droit du coeur et va rejoindre le sillon coronaire qui est le sillon inférieur atrio-ventriculaire.
La coronaire droite se termine au niveau de la croix des sillons (tronc plus long que celui de la gauche) en donnant 2 branches principales:
L’artère rétroventriculaire gauche qui prolonge l’axe de la coronaire droite
L’artère interventriculaire inférieure qui quitte à angle droit le tronc de la coronaire droite chemine dans le sillon interventriculaire inférieur et se termine à l’apex du coeur sans rejoindre l’artère interventriculaire inférieure (théoriquement).

[edit] Coronary artery dominance
The artery that supplies the posterior descending artery (PDA) and the posterolateral artery (PLA) determines the coronary dominance.
 If the right coronary artery (RCA) supplies both these arteries, the circulation can be classified as "right-dominant".
 If the left circumflex artery (LCX) supplies both these arteries, the circulation can be classified as "left-dominant".
 If the RCA supplies the PDA and the LCX supplies the PLA, the circulation is known as "co-dominant".

p.s. "IVA" = artere interventriculaire antérieure" = LAD artery,

whereas

"artere interventriculaire inférieure" = posterior interventricular artery/posterior descending artery = PDA.
