Hi there,This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.Coronary angiogram is recommended before surgery to rule out any existing heart disease. Aortic valve surgery can increase the risk of heart attack in case of pre existing disease. Endocarditis prophylaxis is also recommended.
