Dr. Ornish became famous in the 1990s for showing reversal of coronary artery disease using a very low-fat, near-vegetarian diet.
And of course he could always have coronary artery disease, even though he's a skinny guy.
When you had the heart model over at the hospital, you showed me the coronary artery, you remember?
In one case Powell90 found a small aneurism of the coronary artery in an ulcer of the lesser curvature of the stomach.
The stomach is removed, dividing of course the coronary artery and vein and the left gastro-epiploic artery.
