Spanish term or phrase: larga vs. recorrido
Hi there,

Hoping someone can help me with the difference between these two terms within the context of arteries and specifically the LAD. This is from a coronary catheterisation report/description:

'Arteria Descendente Anterior (DA): Larga de buen calibre y largo recorrido, dando la vuelta al ápex.'

I see recorrido as describing its length so I don't see how it differs from 'larga'. So it's long and it travels a long distance? Are they not one and the same? Maybe not! Somebody put me right please! :)

Thanks in advance!
