Abstract

The variations of the blood supply to the anterior interventricular septum in a series of 1,089 patients are described. Special attention has been given to variations and frequency of occurrence of the septal perforators originating from the left anterior descending artery. These variations may have clinical significance in this era of coronary angioplasty and coronary bypass surgery.
