Aim: Myocardial bridge (MB) is generally known as an asymptomatic and benign anomaly, however, it can cause serious clinical conditions such as exercise-induced ventricular tachycardia and sudden death. Tp-e interval is the distance between the peak and the end of the T wave in electrocardiography. Tp-e/QT and Tp-e/QTc ratios are used as electrocardiographic indicators of ventricular arrhythmias. We have studied the effect of coronary angiographic features (the degree of stenosis and length of MB) of MB on myocardial repolarization parameters.
