СLINICAL CASE OF PATIENT WITH MYOCARDIAL «BRIDGE» OR WHAT CAN BE HIDDEN BEHIND A TYPICAL CLINIC OF ANGINA PECTORIS
The article presents a clinical case, when the myocardial bridge was manifested with symptoms typical for angina pectoris. It is also emphasized the importance of carrying out of coronary angiography for such patients, and the effectiveness of stenting in cases of hemodynamically significant muscle bridges is noted.
