Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A 70-year-old woman was referred to us with postinfarction angina. During cardiac catheterization the only coronary abnormality found was myocardial bridging in the mid and distal parts of the left anterior descending coronary artery, despite a large ventricular septal rupture. The pulmonary-to-systemic flow ratio was 2.5:1. Her operation was successful.
