OBJECTIVES This study sought to report prevalence and radiologic patterns of intramuscular coronary arteries (myocardial bridging) on coronary computed tomographic angiography (CCTA). BACKGROUND Reported prevalence of intramuscular coronary arteries varies between 5% and 86% in autopsy and 0.8% and 4.9% in coronary angiography. Intramuscular coronary arteries can cause technical problems during coronary bypass surgery, including inadvertent perforation of the right ventricle. METHODS One… CONTINUE READING
