The LAD courses downward in the anterior interventricular groove towards the cardiac apex.
At a rough definition, dual LAD consist of a short LAD which terminates high in the anterior interventricular groove mainly supplying the septal wall, and a long LAD which re-enters the anterior interventricular groove at the distal part, supplying the free wall and the apical wall of the left ventricle.
4) The LAD courses through the anterior interventricular groove and provides diagonal branches to the anterior left ventricle and septal branches to the anterior interventricular septum.
3,6) For example, a subepicardial artery that courses through the anterior interventricular groove and provides septal branches is termed the LAD, regardless of its origin from the aorta.
Similar to the previous cases, (3) the left anterior descending artery had a prominent intramural course within the ventricular septum prior to emerging in the anterior interventricular groove.
