In our report, the presence or absence of angina pectoris did not predict the presence of coronary artery disease. A significant number of patients with aortic stenosis and angina pectoris have coronary artery disease but coronary artery disease also exists in asymptomatic form in a significant number of patients with severe aortic stenosis that could not be detected clinically and therefore suggests that the routine use of selective coronary arteriography is indicated in patients over 40 years undergoing cardiac catheterization because of aortic stenosis. This is very important in the preoperative evaluation and in planning the technique of operation to employ during extracorporeal circulation and in determining the necessity of combining aortic valve replacement and myocardial revascularization.
