Severe aortic valve stenosis, normal coronary arteries and an extensive transmural myocardial infarction are described in a 59-year-old man. This combination has been reported infrequently. It emphasizes, however, the need for careful evaluation of the aortic valve obstruction and the patency of the coronary arteries so that specific and appropriate surgical procedures can be planned.
