      MYOCARDIAL BRIDGES IN THE RIGHT CORONARY ARTERY (Abstract): The morphological characteristics of the myocardial bridges were monitored by coronary CT, the patients being from the Dobrogea area. The coronographies were performed on a GE LightSpeed VCT64 Slice CT scanner from 2011 to 2014, for a total number of 2857 persons, of which 1496 women aged 56-79 years and 1361 men , aged between 34 and 74 years. There were recorded: the location, the length and thickness of the myocardial bridge, the diameter and surface of the tunneling vessel, the sex and the age of the patients. We found unique myocardial bridges in 236 cases, at the level of the right coronary artery encountering a number of 26 cases with myocardial bridges, of which in 24 cases were unique and in only 2 cases were double, so a total of 28 myocardial bridges. In the female gender we met 13 cases, in all cases the myocardial bridges being unique, and in the male gender we also encountered 13 cases, in 11 cases being unique and in 2 cases the bridges being double. In both genders, myocardial bridges at the level of the right coronary arteries were found only on the posterior face of the heart, either at the level of the atrio-ventricular groove (at the level of the coronary trunk), or at the level of the upper half of the posterior interventricular groove (posterior interventricular artery).
