Study of coronary artery in cadaver hearts: Morphological Aspects
Author(s): Dr. Ramanujam Singh
Abstract: The knowledge about the number, length and depth of myocardial can help in identifying the people at risk. With the above background, the present study has been undertaken to study the prevalence of myocardial bridges in the coronary arteries. The study had included the 50 adult human cadavers used for the routine dissection procedure. These are routinely used in the Department of Anatomy, in Lord Buddha Koshi Medical College and Hospital, Saharsa, Bihar, Total 50 hearts specimens were collected. The clinical significance of myocardial bridges is uncertain and in the vast majority of cases, it remains clinically silent or acts a contributing factor in the development of myocardial is chaemia, circulatory problems, angina, myocardial infarction, sudden cardiac death, systolic compression and other cardiac disturbances that may require surgical intervention. Hence the knowledge of MBs is essential for cardiologists to detect etiology of different heart related problems, to plan the mode of treatment and to predict their prognosis.
