The paper outlines the modern idea of the abnormal location of coronary arteries, above all their most common muscular myocardial bridges (MBs). It gives data on the prevalence of cardiac vascular anomalies, the diagnosis of which is more often an incidental finding, on the anatomical and pathophysiological features of their variants – asymptomatic and accompanied by various symptoms. The paper also highlights the issues of diagnosis of prognostically unfavorable anatomical and physiological factors of MBs and clinical characteristics and management tactics in patients with the abnormality identified.

Keywords:
