Italian term or phrase: IMA inferiore
I am having trouble breaking this entire section out, in particular the function of inferiore here. Maybe I'm looking at it wrong. It's from a medical record, and the trouble I'm having is it is not written in complete sentences with proper punctuation, so it's all running together:

"con cardiopatia ischemica cronica in pregresso IMA inferiore misconosciuto o recente PTCA su IVA e MO1."

I'm assuming that IMA is AMI (Acute Myocardial Infarction) here.

Thanks!

La localizzazione dell'infarto dipenderà dalla arteria coronaria interessata e dalla parte di muscolo cardiaco che essa irrora. Si avranno così un infarto anteriore, laterale, inferiore, posteriore [087] [088]. In alcuni casi si avrà anche un infarto sub-endocardico [254], oppure microinfarti diffusi [255]. Questa è una situazione molto frequente in casi di malattia coronarica che si sia protratta per molto tempo.

So...

chronic ischaemic heart disease, undiagnosed prior inferior MI, recent PCI - LAD and OM1
