NOCETTI, Luciana Mantovani et al. Myocardial bridges in wild boar heart. Braz. J. Vet. Res. Anim. Sci. [online]. 2002, vol.39, n.2, pp.66-73. ISSN 1413-9596.

Twenty eight wild boar were studied, in order to observe the frequency, width and location of myocardial bridges. For the gross anatomical study, the coronary arteries of the heart had injected with a stained Neoprene "450" Latex solution; submitted to fixation whit 10% formol solution and dissection. Myocardial bridges were found in 57,14% of hearts the studied mean widths value was 1,47 cm and usually the bridges were located in the ventral portions (30,76%), and dorsal (26,92%) on the left and right coronary arteries. Multiple bridges were observed in 31,25% of the hearts, and their number ranged from two to six.
