Medical - Medical: Cardiology
Spanish term or phrase: 1ª Dx
From the description of a heart patien on admission to heart unit:

"se objetiva oclusión de DAm y CDp que se rellena por vasos colaterales, ***1ª Dx*** 90%. Se decide tratar la lesion de la DA."

I feel it's the abbreviation for a blood vessel but i'm not sure which one.

Thanks
