Ejection fraction 45% is moderate. (30 to 50% -moderate)
LV dysfunction means LV systolic dysfunction.

Basically what the report is stating is your Left Ventricle, the chamber of the heart that pumps the blood through your system is mildly dysfunctional---LV is short for Left Ventricle. The EF stands for Ejection Fraction--yours is 45% (which is consistent next to mild LV dysfunction...EF's of 55-65% are very good, so yours is not really all that impossible.
The restof the report you copied just states that the left main coronary artery originate from the sinus of Valsalva (this is an anatomical landmark) and splits into two branches as it becomes the LAD (Left Anterior Descending coronary artery).

I hope that clarifies things somewhat for you-medical jargon and abbreviations can be more difficult to infer than some foreign languages. Source(s): MD---Internal and Emergency Medicine
