Abstract

We report on the case of a 45-year-old man with recurrent syncope and angina with shortness of breath on exertion. Invasive and noninvasive diagnostic methods revealed severely stenosed bicuspid aortic valve, postductal coarctation of the aorta, and a coronary artery-descending aorta fistula. After surgical correction of the coarctation, ligation of the fistula, and aortic valve replacement, the patient's symptoms resolved.
