English translation:percutaneous transluminal coronary angiography
Explanation:
= PTCA

I think RCA is right coronary artery

Not sure about RCX, maybe circumflex

agree  Steffen Walter: RCX = Ramus circumflexus - see http://www.med-serv.de/ma-1686-RCX.html

agree  Anne Schulz: "Verziehe" should probably read "Verzicht"; and ACVB stands for arterio-coronary venous bypass (graft) - they discuss the possibility of a PTCA of the circumflex artery and do not want to perform a ACVB any more.
