German term or phrase: Abgangsstenose
From a medical report:
Koronarangiographie: 90%ige Abgangsstenose vom 1. Diagonalast der rechten Koronararterie.

I can't find the "Abgang" part of the stenosis. Could it mean 'downwarts'?

English translation:stenosis of/at/near the origin of a branch
Explanation:
>>Coronary angiography: 90% stenosis of/at/near the origin of the 1st diagnonal branch of the right coronary artery<< --

If the stenosis is AT (rather than below or distal to) the origin of the vessel, it could be reported at the "orifice of" the vessel, as in "stenosis at/of the left main coronary orifice; not a good location.
