Myocardial bridge (MB) is a congenital variation of the coronary arteries and the segment of the coronary artery through myocardium is compressed during systole. Although it is relatively asymptomatic, percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) may be necessary to relieve symptoms.

We report the coronary rupture in a case with myocardial bridge which occurred during… CONTINUE READING
