    Abstract

    A 75 year old man with severe angina caused by aortic stenosis and coronary artery disease was considered to be unsuitable for cardiac surgery after the recent removal of a bronchial carcinoma. Combined percutaneous balloon dilatation of the aortic valve and right coronary angioplasty considerably ameliorated the patient's angina.
