Hello and welcome to JA. Dr Saleem here. Will be answering you shortly

I am sorry to hear about that. Well if the myocardial bridge is causing you symptoms especially during stress or time of activity then surgical correction with myotomy or bypass is the way to go.

It depends on the exact extent of bridge and severity of your symptoms depending on which your doctor will decide which approach is the best for you. Patency of other coronary arteries is also important to see .

Myotomy involves resection of the overlying heartwall compressing your arteries ( the bridge).

hope it answered your query.
