Abstract

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.
