Systolic coronary occlusion due to myocardial bridging - a rare cause of ischaemia

Academic Article


  • Myocardial bridging causing systolic occlusion of the left anterior descending coronary artery was identified in a 47-year-old man with angina. A fixed anterolateral wall defect was demonstrated on thallium imaging and he underwent successful division of the bridge resulting in abolition of his symptoms and disappearance of the thallium defect. © 1990.
