Abstract Rheumatic heart disease (RHD) is still highly prevalent in developing countries like India, while the incidence of coronary artery disease (CAD) is on the rise. So the occurrence of a combination of RHD with CAD becomes more likely. We describe a patient with severe mitral stenosis and tight stenosis of the left anterior descending (LAD) coronary artery who underwent two percutaneous interventional procedures (balloon mitral valvotomy and coronary stenting) simultaneously. Specific problems associated with the combination of the two procedures are discussed.
