Can be normal: A myocardial bridge is when a coronary artery the normally runs on top of the heart actually dives into the muscle and is compressed with each heart beat. This isn't as bad ad it sounds because most blood flow occurs during diastole or when the heart is relaxed.

Can diltiazem be the cause of my cough? I have WPW & myocardial bridging of the coronary arteries
Probably not.: Diltiazem is a calcium channel blocker and is not usually associated with a cough. ACE inhibitors such as enlapril, lisinopril and captopril have a significant side effect with a cough. Angiotensin Converting Enzyme drugs cause a chemical reaction in the lungs by blocking the conversion of angiotensin 1 to angiotensin 2. Look for other factors like reflux causing the cough. Good luck. ...Read more
