Acute myocardial infarction related to smoke inhalation and myocardial bridging

McCabe, M. J., Weston, C. F. and Fraser, Alan Gordon 1992. Acute myocardial infarction related to smoke inhalation and myocardial bridging. Postgraduate Medical Journal -London- 68 (803) , pp. 758-761. 10.1136/pgmj.68.803.758

A previously healthy 26 year old woman who was exposed to smoke during a house fire developed acute anterior myocardial infarction complicated by ventricular fibrillation. Subsequent left ventriculography confirmed anterior infarction, but coronary arteriography was normal apart from myocardial bridging over a segment of the left anterior descending artery. The development of acute myocardial infarction in this patient suggests that, in the presence of bridging, carbon monoxide inhalation may cause regional infarction.
