Abstract

Myocardial bridging occurs when a segment of major epicardial coronary artery courses intramurally through myocardium, commonly involving the left anterior descending. However, myocardial bridging involving coronary arteries other than left anterior descending is less-common and rarely reported, especially in the elderly population. We report a rare case of multiple myocardial bridging involving the left anterior descending, first obtuse marginal, and ramus intermedius in a 68-year-old Asian female. We also briefly discuss the imaging evaluation and pathophysiology of myocardial ischemia in myocardial bridging. This is the second reported case of myocardial bridging involving such combination, and to our knowledge, the first for elderly patient.
