The actual frequency of association of a coronary artery disease with a valvular disease is not known with accuracy because published works concern either autopsy analyses after valve replacement [1] or non-randomized arteriographic studies [2], most often limited to aortic valvular diseases [3–6]. Coronary atheromatous lesions have been observed in 15%–40% of aortic [4–7] and 16% of mitral valvular diseases [2]. The association is found to be increasingly more frequent in relation to the subject’s advancing age, a fact which in itself accounts for the difference in frequency between aortic (17.7%), mitro-aortic (21%) and mitral (8.6%) valvular diseases in the autopsy series of Coleman [1].
