Coronary artery disease and aortic stenosis frequently coexist. The pathophysiology of both conditions is similar where atherosclerosis is the hallmark feature. Risk factors for aortic stenosis are also similar for coronary artery disease. The standard therapy in the past decades has been coronary artery bypass grafting and aortic valve replacement; however, with the introduction of transcatheter aortic valve implantation their management is probably going to shift towards a percutaneous strategy.

Abstract

Coronary artery disease and aortic stenosis frequently coexist. The pathophysiology of both conditions is similar where atherosclerosis is the hallmark feature. Risk factors for aortic stenosis are also similar for coronary artery disease. The standard therapy in the past decades has been coronary artery bypass grafting and aortic valve replacement; however, with the introduction of transcatheter aortic valve implantation their management is probably going to shift towards a percutaneous strategy.
