Coronary perfusion pressure

Left ventricular coronary perfusion pressure is the pressure gradient that drives LV coronary perfusion (supplied primarily by the LAD and circumflex territories). It is defined as the aortic diastolic pressure (DP) minus the left ventricular end-diastolic pressure (LVEDP). This can be abbreviated by: CorPP = DP – LVEDP
