Abstract

Thirty hearts of males cattle from 30 to 50 months old were studied, in order to observe the frequency, width and localization of the myocardial bridges on the coronary arteries. Hearts had their coronary arteries injected with colored solution of Neoprene latex 450, what was followed by dissection. Myocardial bridges were observed in 100% of the hearts.They were multiple in
56,6% of the cases. The width of those bridges ranged from 0.3 to 6.2 cm with an avarege of 1.62 cm. Bridges were most frequently found in the medium portion of the ventriculus.The most common site of myocardial bridges was the paraconal interventricular branch.
