Background Although many patients with valvular heart disease have concomitant coronary artery disease (CAD), there are limited data on the association between rheumatic valvular disease (RVD) and CAD. In this study, we aimed to investigate the prevalence of CAD in a group of patients with RVD and undergoing coronary angiography before valvular surgery.
