(Highly developed Stenosis in 2nd marginal branch)???-What is "de novo" after stenosis???

Your input would be greatly appreciated!

Restenosis of a large 2nd obtuse marginal branch

de novo = new.
Estenosis de novo = restenosis (also in Spanish)
The 2nd obtuse marginal branch may be well developed (bien desarrollada), large.

Full-blown/advanced restenosis of the second obtuse marginal branch [OMB]

Well, I reckon "de novo" = again. I doubt very much if the stenosis is "new" as there WOULD have been symptoms to inidcate this. If an artey is really clogged up in the heart, this causes serious problems, n'est-ce pas?


Se obtuvieron dos proyecciones ortogonales que permitieran una mejor evaluación de la lesión a estudiar mediante un equipo biplano (Bicor, Siemens), lo cual permitió no modificar las características radiológicas de cada adquisición. Las diferentes coronariografías obtenidas fueron analizadas tras el procedimiento por un mismo operador, mediante la técnica de la detección automática de bordes y utilizando la medida del catéter guía en cada proyección como referencia conocida. Se analizaron los cambios de diámetro arterial en la zona dilatada, tomando como referencia las ramas laterales de la arteria. También se analizaron las distintas modificaciones de los diámetros en el segmento proximal (que correspondía al segmento coronario comprendido entre el final del catéter de infusión y la lesión dilatada) y distal de la arteria dilatada (tras la segunda diagonal en la descendente anterior o tras la segunda marginal en la circunfleja). Se tomó como referencia la arteria contralateral de la coronaria

circumflex left coronary marginal br., possibly posterior artery of left ventricle posterior surface of left ventricle (Latin, circum = around + flexs = to bend)

The circumflex artery curves to the left around the heart within the coronary sulcus, giving rise to one or more diagonal or "obtuse marginal" branches as it curves toward the posterior surface of the heart. It helps form the posterior left ventricular branch or posterolateral artery. The circumflex artery ends at the point where it joins to form to the posterior interventricular artery in ten percent of all cases, which lies in the posterior interventricular sulcus. In the other 90% of all cases the posterior interventricular artery comes out of the right coronary artery.
It gives off obtuse marginal branches (OM).

I get the distinct impression that not many people "like" looking into cardiology queries..!

agree  Dr Sue Levy: someone's obviously out of his depth here...
2 hrs
  -> Thank you! I know the feeling...it took me more than a few minutes to work this one out.

neutral  Rita Tepper: advanced restenosis is right, but "de gran desarrollo" is qualifying the second obtuse marginal branch
