Medical - Medical: Cardiology / surgical report
Spanish term or phrase: f/Dato
This expression appears in a surgical report form that describes coronary bypass procedures, listing the arteries involved and the type of bypass grafts performed.

There is a sort-of table in part of the document that looks like this:

DA Torniquete
DG f/Dato
CX Torniquete
CD/DP f/Dato

DA refers to the anterior descending coronary artery; DG is the diagonal artery; CX is the circumflex artery, and I think that CD/DP (coronaria derecha / descendente posterior) would be the posterior descending branch of the right coronary artery.

So my question is, what is this f/Dato entry? I'm guessing it refers to something the surgeon does to the arteries (like the torniquete) ... but I really have no clue, and I can't find any references to this.

Thanks for the help and suggestions.
