Xiao Hongwen Pengyulan Zhwon Qien Anatomy Department of Luzhou Medical Collage Luzhou 646000
The mural coronary artery and the myocardial bridge were studied in 50 hearts. The location, length, width and thickness of the myocardial bridge were measured and the structure of the mural coronary artery was observed and measured under light microscope. The tunica intima of the anterior segment of the coronary artery was significntly thicker than that of the posterior(P0.01) and inferior(P0.05) segment. The relationship between the thickness of the tunica intima of coronary artery with the atherosclerosis was discussed.
