Myocardial bridging (MB) is considered as a topic of high interest since its occurrence in diff erent studies is statistically signifi cant, and the clinical  manifestations of this phenomenon are complicated with cardiovascular  diseases. Whether the MB participates in heart diseases and has a decisive  eff ect to life-threatening situations is still under research, and many studies  have been conducted to clarify the abovementioned question. A case report with a MB on the left anterior descending coronary artery is presented in the
