Creating Matching Planes in Fluent

I have a rather unusual query so hopefully someone can help me out.

I am simulating blood flow in arteries. I am running one mesh which includes just the coronary artery and a second which includes the same coronary artery attached to a larger artery (the aorta).

I have managed to complete the simulations in both cases and have added a number of planes and Lines to the single coronary mesh. However I now want to add the same planes to the second coronary mesh (the one branching off the aorta).

However, since the size and position of the coronary attachment in the larger mesh is different, the same coordinates will not work in both grids. Is it possible to create exactly the same plane as in the single coronary model so as to create an accurate comparison? I am not concerned about the flow in the aorta and could delete the aorta surfaces if required.

See the image below for a clearer explanation.

Thanks for your help.
