Most common artery involved was the anterior inter ventricular artery, which even had multiple bridges over a single artery.
Of the vessels involved, the most common was over the anterior inter ventricular artery (66.6%) (Fig.
Of these 8 hearts, multiple bridges over a single artery were found in 3 (17%) hearts, involving only the anterior inter ventricular artery (Fig.
Of these 8 hearts, 5 (28%) hearts had multi arterial bridging, involving the anterior inter ventricular artery (AIVA) and the left marginal artery (LMA) in 3 (17%) hearts; involving the anterior inter ventricular artery and the left diagonal artery (LDA) in 2 (11%) hearts (Fig.
Only (2%) one heart had three myocardial bridges, all over the anterior inter ventricular artery (Fig.
In the present study, myocardial bridges were observed over the anterior inter ventricular artery in 67% of the hearts which is close to that of Polacek's study (Table 5)
Caption: Figure 2: Catheterization showing the posterior descending artery and posterior left ventricular artery branches of the right coronary artery from the pulmonary artery (arrow).
LM, left main coronary artery; LAD, left anterior descending; LCx, left circumflex artery; RCA, right coronary artery; RPD, right posterior descending artery; RVP, right posterior ventricular artery; DGLIS, diagonal branch; PT, pulmonary trunk; Ao, aorta.
Intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) examination from the right ventricular artery revealed that the heavily calcified plaque blocked entry of the CTO, suggesting difficulty in any guidewires penetrating into the CTO lesion (Figure 2).
