Myocardial bridging has been recognized as a potential cause of symptoms of angina, arrhythmias and even infarction. Various treatment strategies including beta-blockers, surgery and more recently intra-coronary stents have been used to manage bridging. We report a novel case of use of self-expanding stent for myocardial bridging in a patient with symptoms of angina and ischemia on nuclear imaging. We further present the 18-month follow up showing minima in-stent stenosis. To our knowledge, this is the first report of using a self-expanding stent in myocardial bridging. The use of self-expanding stents could be a potential treatment for symptomatic myocardial bridging.
