2) The myocardial bridge
is diagnosed on catheter angiography by observing systolic compression of the artery, or the so-called "milking effect.
Abstract: We report a case of anterior myocardial infarction in a middle-aged man without risk factors for atherosclerosis in whom myocardial bridge
was diagnosed several years later.
The condition in which a coronary artery segment tunneled within a band of myocardial muscle is named as myocardial bridge
CORONARY STENTING FOR MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION DUE TO VASOSPASM IN A MYOCARDIAL BRIDGE
We present here a case of cannabis smoking and sildenafil citrate induced ACS in a patient with myocardial bridge
is a most common congenital abnormality of coronary arteries.
In autopsy and multidetector computed tomography (MDCT) series myocardial bridge
segments were reported in ventricular muscle (2-6).
Objective: Myocardial bridge
(MB) is a congenital anomaly characterized by narrowing during systole of some of the epicardial coronary arterial segments running in the myocardium.
There is an evidence from pathophysiologic and intravascular ultrasound studies that the arterial segment proximal to the myocardial bridge
(MB) has a higher frequency of atherosclerosis, whereas the tunneled segment is relatively spared.
A part of epicardial coronary arteries traveling through myocardial tissue other than its normal subepicardial pathway is known as myocardial bridge
Acute myocardial infarction caused by a myocardial bridge
treated with intracoronary stenting.
Induction of ischemia solely by a myocardial bridge
has been demonstrated and different underlying mechanisms such as thrombus formation, vasospasm, endothelial dysfunction or impaired coronary flow reserve have been proposed to explain this (8).
