What is myocardial bridging of the coronary arteries?

Myocardial bridging occurs when a portion of the heart's blood vessel is covered by muscle (bridge), instead of resting on top of the heart muscle. As the heart squeezes to pump blood, the muscle exerts pressure across the bridge and constricts the artery.
