Abstract

The authors have studied the location of myocardial bridges in 134 hearts of different breed, pure dogs. After injection of Neoprene Latex or gelatine solution, the coronary arteries were dissected. Myocardial bridges (90.43%) were observed in branches of the left coronary arteries, and 9.57% in branches of the right coronary arteries. The bridges' locations were: 37.23% in the dorsal portion; 28.72% in the medium portion; 21.28% in the ventral portion; 7.45% in the vertex portion; 3.19% simultaneously in the dorsal and medium portions and 2.13% simultaneously in the medium and ventral portions. Statistical differences were not observed between males and females.
