Myocardial bridging (MB) is a frequent condition usually considered benign but it may be associated with myocardial ischemia. When bridging is symptomatic, therapeutic options are numerous and in the absence of guidelines all options are conceivable. This is a case of a 27-year-old man who benefited from a new surgical approach: myotomy for MB of the left anterior descending coronary artery with the help of left robotic thoracoscopy.
