Both extremely helpful. Thank you.

Peer comments on this answer (and responses from the answerer)
agree  Charles Davis: Yes, I think MA must be mamaria; it can stand for marginal aguda (right marginal artery), as my answer shows, but in the context of bypass surgery this is much more likely.

  -> Indeed. I have translated quite a few texts on this subject now. Thank you!

Reference: MA can be marginal agudo = right marginal artery (RMA), but not here (I think)

Reference information:
I posted "Right Marginal Artery (RMA)" as an answer but then withdrew it, because I don't think it fits the context; this artery does not seem to be implicated in bypass surgery as the mammary artery is. However, my references may be useful to somebody one day in a different context, so here they are:

"La rama marginal aguda (MA) de la ACD [arteria coronaria derecha] sirve como límite entre la porción proximal y media de la ACD. La porción de la arteria antes del origen de la MA se conoce como la ACD proximal, mientras que el segmento justo por encima de la MA es la ACD medial. El segmento de la mitad entre la MA y el origen de la ADP se llama ACD distal."
http://www.iguana2007.com/amolca-jul-cliente/pdf/pagina-29-3...

"CD = coronaria derecha, MA = marginal aguda, DP = descendente posterior; A = anterior"
http://www.drscope.com/pac/cardiologia/a3/a3_pag25.htm
http://pifrecv.utalca.cl/docs/2010/VII_curso/Pacheco.pdf

This is one of the two branches of the Right Coronary Artery, the other being the Posterior Descending Artery:

"Por su parte, la arteria coronaria derecha se divide en la arteria descendente posterior derecha y la arteria marginal aguda."
http://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Circulación_coronaria

"La arteria coronaria derecha (RCA, por su sigla en inglés), que se divide en la arteria descendente posterior derecha y la arteria marginal aguda, irriga sangre al ventrículo derecho, la aurícula derecha, el nódulo sinoauricular (grupo de células localizado en la pared de la aurícula derecha que regula el ritmo de los latidos del corazón), y nodo auriculoventricular."
http://www.sharpenespanol.com/healthinfo/content.cfm?pageid=...

In English it is called the Right Marginal Artery, and its normal abbreviation is RMA:

"The right marginal branch of right coronary artery (or right marginal artery) is a large marginal branch which follows the acute margin of the heart and supplies branches to both surfaces of the right ventricle.

ARTERIES:
RCA = right coronary
AB = atrial branches
SANB = sinuatrial nodal
RMA = right marginal
LCA = left coronary
CB = circumflex branch
LAD/AIB = anterior interventricular
LMA = left marginal
PIA/PDA = posterior descending
MARG = left marginal
AVN = atrioventricular nodal"
