The prevalence of conduction defects was investigated in 51 patients older than 60 years with aortic stenosis (AS) who underwent aortic valve replacement. Thirty one of the 51 patients, (61%) had associated mitral anular calcium (MAC). The mean age and prevalence of coronary artery disease, systemic hypertension and diabetes mellitus were similar in both groups.
