Abstract

Coexisting coronary artery disease poses risks to the patient with valvular heart disease and complicates management. In ninety-one patients, preoperative coronary arteriography demonstrated obstructing coronary lesions that were treated by bypass grafts at valve surgery. These combined operations were found safe and effective for most patients.
