Abstract

Aoric stenosis (AS) is the most frequent acquired valvular heart disease and often coexists with coronary artery disease(CAD). Both illnesses may present similar symptoms and lead to myocardial damage. Mutual effect on each other makesdifficult to estimate the progression of both diseases and to settle optimal treatment. In the article we present a patientwith diagnosed moderate AS and CAD. In spite of complex diagnosis a decision to implement revascularization was stillnot conclusive. Ultimately anginal symptoms and ischaemia revealed in imaging examination were decisive to makethe angioplasty of coronary artery.
