ABSTRACT: Among 980 consecutive selective coronary angiograms performed, nine patients had myocardial bridges of the left anterior descending (LAD) coronary artery. The overall prevalence of myocardial bridges was 0.92%. Among these patients, three patients had coronary artery disease, while six cases were isolated myocardial muscle bridges. With respect to functional abnormality, three had grade III milking effect, three had grade II and three had grade I milking effect. The indications for coronary angiograms were typical chest pain in seven cases and atypical pain in two cases. Their clinical and laboratory investigations are presented with literature review.
