Deciding how to treat acute myocardial infarction (MI) with myocardial bridge is difficult because stent fracture and early restenosis are frequently reported. We present a 50-year-old female patient with acute MI and myocardial bridge. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) and fractional flow reserve were used to reach a decision on treatment.
