Abstract

An anatomical anomaly, in which myocardial fibers make a bridge over the epicardial coronary artery, is known as the myocardial bridge. The clinical significance of this anomaly has been emphasized because serious cardiac diseases, such as myocardial infarctions or sudden death, can occur. We experienced the anesthetic management of a 72-year-old female patient with a myocardial bridge under general anesthesia for cholecystitis.
