Valvular heart disease patterns have evolved over the past 2 decades with the elimination of rheumatic valve disease and an exponential increase in degenerative disease. Many patients now have diseases of both heart valve and coronary arteries. They share similar risk factors and in some cases one condition may herald the onset of the other. This talk explores the need to evaluate these patients more carefully and discusses the diagnostic and treatment options available and their occasional complex interaction.
