The clinical significance of myocardial bridges (MBs) is variable, and most patients are asymptomatic. However, angina, myocardial infarction and sudden death, associated with MBs, have been reported. Intracoronary stents offer a novel, and potentially definitive, treatment for myocardial ischemia associated with clinically significant MBs. We describe the use of intracoronary stenting for primary angioplasty in a patient with an anterior myocardial infarction associated with MBs.
